Aegilops tauschii draft genome sequence reveals a gene repertoire for wheat adaptation
(Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
About 8,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, a spontaneous hybridization of the wild diploid grass Aegilops tauschii (2n = 14; DD) with the cultivated tetraploid wheat Triticum turgidum (2n = 4x = 28; AABB) resulted in ...
Time-series multispectral indices from unmanned aerial vehicle imagery reveal senescence rate in bread wheat
Detection of senescence's dynamics in crop breeding is time consuming and needs considerable details regarding its rate of progression and intensity. Normalized difference red-edge index (NDREI) along with four other ...
Lodging resistance and yield potential of winter wheat: effect of planting density and genotype
(Higher Education Press, 2015)
Improved lodging resistance is important for achieving high yield in irrigated environments. This study was conducted to determine genotypic variation in lodging resistance and related morphological traits among ...
Identification of genomic regions controlling adult-plant stripe rust resistance in Chinese Landrace Pingyuan 50 through bulked segregant analysis
(American Phytopathological Society, 2010)
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, is one of the most widespread and destructive wheat diseases worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars with adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective approach for ...
Composition and functional analysis of low-molecular-weight glutenin alleles with Aroona near-isogenic lines of bread wheat
(BioMed Central, 2012)
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) strongly influence the bread-making quality of bread wheat. These proteins are encoded by a multi-gene family located at the Glu-A3, Glu-B3 and Glu-D3 loci on the short arms ...
QTL mapping for flour and noodle colour components and yellow pigment content in common wheat
Improvement of flour colour is an important breeding objective for various wheat-based end-products. The objectives of this study were to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for flour colour components and yellow pigment ...
Genome-wide association for grain yield under rainfed conditions in historical wheat cultivars from Pakistan
(Frontiers Media, 2015-10-20)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) were undertaken to identify SNP markers associated with yield and yield-related traits in 123 Pakistani historical wheat cultivars evaluated during 2011–2014 seasons under rainfed ...
QTL mapping of adult-plant resistance to leaf rust in the wheat cross Zhou 8425B/Chinese spring using high-density SNP markers
(Frontiers Media, 2017)
Wheat leaf rust is an important disease worldwide. Growing resistant cultivars is an effective means to control the disease. In the present study, 244 recombinant inbred lines from Zhou 8425B/Chinese Spring cross were ...
Molecular mapping of a non-host resistance gene YrpstY1 in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) for resistance to wheat stripe rust
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Cultivated barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.) is considered as a non-host or inappropriate host species for wheat stripe rust caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici . Most barley cultivars show a broad-spectrum resistance ...
