Genome-wide association mapping for resistance to leaf rust, stripe rust and tan spot in wheat reveals potential candidate genes
(Springer; Springer Verlag, 2018)
Leaf rust (LR), stripe rust (YR) and tan spot (TS) are some of the important foliar diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). To identify candidate resistance genes for these diseases in CIMMYT’s (International Maize and ...
Genetic mapping of resistance in hexaploid wheat for a quarantine disease
(Frontiers; Frontiers Media, 2018)
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 ...
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 ...
Suppression expression of resistance to stripe rust in synthetic hexaploid wheat (Triticum turgidum x T. tauschii)
Some 74 hexaploid wheats, synthesized by either crossing resistant Triticum turgidum var. durum [T. durum] with susceptible/intermediate T. tauschii [Aegilops squarrosa] or susceptible/intermediate T. turgidum with resistant ...
Genetic gains for grain yield in CIMMYT’s semi-arid wheat yield trials grown in suboptimal environments
(Crop Science, 2018)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple food crop grown worldwide on >220 million ha. Climate change is regarded to have severe effect on wheat yields, and unpredictable drought stress is one of the most important ...
Adult plant resistance to stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) in Pakistani advanced lines and wheat varieties
(Southern Cross Publishing; Southern Cross Publishing-Australia, 2018)
After decades of effective wheat stem rust control, due mainly to use of the Sr31 resistance gene in wheat, as of the early 2000s new virulent strains of the stem rust fungus, especially the Ug99 or the TTKSK races, are ...
Breeding-assisted genomics: applying meta- GWAS for milling and baking quality in CIMMYT wheat breeding program
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
One of the biggest challenges for genetic studies on natural or unstructured populations is the unbalanced datasets where individuals are measured at different times and environments. This problem is also common in crop ...
Combining high-throughput phenotyping and genomic information to increase prediction and selection accuracy in wheat breeding
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Genomics and phenomics have promised to revolutionize the field of plant breeding. The integration of these two fields has just begun and is being driven through big data by advances in next-generation sequencing and ...
Ñipal F2016: variety of bread wheat for the Rural District 014
Recent efforts in the Experimental Field of Mexicali Valley of the National Institute of Agricultural and Livestock Forestry Research have allowed the development of wheat varieties of high yield and industrial quality. ...
