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 ...
QTL characterization of fusarium head blight resistance in CIMMYT bread wheat line soru#1
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistant line Soru#1 was hybridized with the German cultivar Naxos to generate 131 recombinant inbred lines for QTL mapping. The population was phenotyped for FHB and associated traits in spray ...
Identification of genomic associations for adult plant resistance in the background of popular South Asian wheat cultivar, PBW343
(Frontiers Media, 2016)
Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race ...
QTL mapping of grain Zn and Fe concentrations in two hexaploid wheat RIL populations with ample transgressive segregation
(Frontiers Media, 2017)
More than 50% of undernourished children live in Asia and more than 25% live in Africa. Coupled with an inadequate food supply, mineral deficiencies are widespread in these populations; particularly zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) ...
