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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Distribution of allelic variation for genes of vernalization and photoperiod among wheat cultivars from 23 countries
Molecular markers for vernalization genes Vrn-A1, Vrn-B1, Vrn-D1 and Vrn-B3 and photoperiod gene Ppd-D1 were used to detect the presence of these genes among 755 cultivars from 23 countries. Days to heading and physiological ...
Correlation between mixolab parameter and mixograph and rva parameters and its effect on noodle quality
It is critical to clarify the associations between the newly available Mixolab parameters and flour protein characteristics and starch pasting properties determined by Mixograph, Rapid Visco-Analyzer (RVA), and noodle ...
Contribution of CIMMYT wheat germplasm to genetic improvement of grain yield in spring wheat of Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, and Xinjiang provinces
Information on advances in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) productivity is essential for genetic improvement on yield potential. Four yield potential trials with totally 59 leading cultivars from Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, and ...
Wheat genetic resources in the post-genomics era : promise and challenges
(Oxford University Press, 2018)
Wheat genetic resources have been used for genetic improvement since 1876, when Stephen Wilson (Transactions and Proceedings of the Botanical Society of Edinburgh 12: 286) consciously made the first wide hybrid involving ...
Seedling and slow rusting resistances to leaf rust in CIMMYT wheat lines
CIMMYT wheat has played an important role in wheat breeding in China. Identification of leaf rust resistance genes in CIMMYT wheat is important for developing wheat cultivars with resistance to leaf rust in China. A total ...
