Resistance to spot blotch in two mapping populations of common wheat is controlled by multiple QTL of minor effects
Spot blotch (SB) is an important fungal disease of wheat in South Asia and South America. Host resistance is regarded as an economical and environmentally friendly approach of controlling SB, and the inheritance of resistance ...
Genetic mapping of resistance in hexaploid wheat for a quarantine disease
Karnal bunt (KB) of wheat, caused by Tilletia indica, is one of the greatest challenges to grain industry, not because of yield loss, but quarantine regulations that restrict international movement and trade of affected ...
Unlocking the genetic diversity of Creole wheats
(Nuture Publishing Group, 2016)
Climate change and slow yield gains pose a major threat to global wheat production. Underutilized genetic resources including landraces and wild relatives are key elements for developing high-yielding and climate-resilient ...
Genomic prediction models for grain yield of spring bread wheat in diverse agro-ecological zones
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Genomic and pedigree predictions for grain yield and agronomic traits were carried out using high density molecular data on a set of 803 spring wheat lines that were evaluated in 5 sites characterized by several environmental ...
Harnessing genetic potential of wheat germplasm banks through impact-oriented-prebreeding for future food and nutritional security
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
The value of exotic wheat genetic resources for accelerating grain yield gains is largely unproven and unrealized. We used next-generation sequencing, together with multi-environment phenotyping, to study the contribution ...
