Combined linkage and association mapping reveal QTL for host plant resistance to common rust (Puccinia sorghi) in tropical maize
(BMC (part of Springer Nature); BioMed Central, 2018)
Background: Common rust, caused by Puccinia sorghi, is an important foliar disease of maize that has been associated with up to 50% grain yield loss. Development of resistant maize germplasm is the ideal strategy to combat ...
Stem rust resistance in a geographically diverse collection of spring wheat lines collected from across Africa
Following the emergence of the Ug99 lineage of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt) a collective international effort has been undertaken to identify new sources of wheat stem rust resistance effective against these ...
Genome-wide association study based on multiple imputation with low-depth sequencing data: application to biofuel traits in reed canarygrass
(Genetics Society of America, 2015)
Genotyping by sequencing allows for large-scale genetic analyses in plant species with no reference genome, but sets the challenge of sound inference in presence of uncertain genotypes. We report an imputation-based ...
Genome-wide association studies of free amino acid levels by six multi-locus models in bread wheat
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been widely used to dissect the complex biosynthetic processes of plant metabolome. Most studies have used singlelocus GWAS approaches, such as mixed linear model (MLM), and ...
Identification of novel quantitative trait loci linked to crown rot resistance in spring wheat
Crown rot (CR), caused by various Fusarium species, is a major disease in many cereal-growing regions worldwide. Fusarium culmorum is one of the most important species, which can cause significant yield losses in wheat. A ...
Wheat genomics and breeding: bridging the gap
Genome-wide association for grain yield under rainfed conditions in historical wheat cultivars from Pakistan
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) were undertaken to identify SNP markers associated with yield and yield-related traits in 123 Pakistani historical wheat cultivars evaluated during 2011–2014 seasons under rainfed ...
