Definition of the low molecular weight glutenin subunit gene family members in a set of standard bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties
Low-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (LMW-GS) are a class of seed storage proteins that play a major role in the determination of the viscoelastic properties of wheat dough. The LMW-GSs are encoded by multi-gene families ...
CIMMYT's genetic progress in wheat grain quality under four nitrogen rates
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeders often try to simultaneously improve grain yield and bread-making quality. This study examined changes in CIMMYT's wheat germplasm with respect to grain protein concentration (GPC)- and ...
Genome-wide association study reveals novel genomic regions for grain yield and yield-related traits in drought-stressed synthetic hexaploid wheat
Synthetic hexaploid wheat (SHW; 2n = 6x = 42, AABBDD, Triticum aestivum L.) is produced from an interspecific cross between durum wheat (2n = 4x = 28, AABB, T. turgidum L.) and goat grass (2n = 2x = 14, DD, Aegilops tauschii ...
Nutritive appraisal of various wheat varieties/lines for developing biofortified wheat (Triticum Aestivum L.)
(OMICS International; OMICS International, 2018)
Essential micronutrients such as iron and zinc deficiencies affect more than two billion people globally especially the pregnant women and children below the age of five. Wheat, like many other staple cereals, contains low ...
Introgression of a gene for high grain protein content (Gpc-B1) into two leading cultivars of wheat in Eastern Gangetic Plains of India through marker assisted backcross breeding
(Academic Journals, 2015)
A wheat genotype named ‘PBW343+Gpc-B1+LR24’ containing Gpc-B1 gene linked with the DNA-based marker Xucw108, developed at Choudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU), Meerut, through markerassisted selection, was used as ...
