Genetic mapping of resistance in hexaploid wheat for a quarantine disease
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 ...
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 ...
Genome-wide association study reveals novel genomic regions associated with 10 grain minerals in synthetic hexaploid wheat
Synthetic hexaploid wheat (SHW; Triticum durum L. × Aegilopstauschii Coss.) is a means of introducing novel genes/genomic regions into bread wheat (T. aestivum L.) and a potential genetic resource for improving grain mineral ...
Hybrid wheat prediction using genomic, pedigree, and environmental covariables interaction models
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
In this study, we used genotype × environment interactions (G×E) models for hybrid prediction, where similarity between lines was assessed by pedigree and molecular markers, and similarity between environments was accounted ...
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 ...
Adult plant resistance to stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) in Pakistani advanced lines and wheat varieties
(Southern Cross Publishing, 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 ...
Nutritive appraisal of various wheat varieties/lines for developing biofortified wheat (Triticum Aestivum L.)
(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 ...
First report of the cereal cyst nematode (Heterodera Filipjevi) on wheat in Algeria
(American Phytopathological Society, 2018)
Cereal cyst nematodes (CCNs) are an important group of sedentary plant-parasitic nematodes that restrict production of cereal crops throughout the world (Smiley et al. 2017). Heterodera filipjevi is considered one of the ...
Determination of resistance in winter wheat genotypes to the dryland root rots caused by Fusarium Culmorum in Turkey
(Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University, 2018)
Averting wheat blast by implementing a 'wheat holiday' : in search of alternative crops in West Bengal, India
