Molecular approaches for the genetic improvement of cereals for stable production in water-limited environments
Drought is a major problem for the production of the world’s five principal cereals: maize, wheat, rice, pearl millet, and sorghum. Past and current breeding efforts have met the challenge posed by drought with some success. ...
Effect of bed planting and zero tillage on productivity and water use of Irrigated maize - wheat cropping system in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan
(Researchers Links, 2018)
Crop establishment methods like broadcasting of wheat and manual planting of maize on flat surface coupled with flood irrigation are used in irrigated maize–wheat system of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province that requires ...
Extending the marker x environment interaction model for genomic-enabled prediction and genome-wide association analysis in durum wheat
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2016)
The marker ´ environment interaction (M´E) genomic model can be used to generate predictions for untested individuals and identify genomic regions in which effects are stable across environments and others that show ...
Genomic prediction of breeding values when modeling genotype × environment interaction using pedigree and dense molecular markers
(Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), 2012)
Genomic selection (GS) has become an important aid in plant and animal breeding. Multienvironment (multitrait) models allow borrowing of information across environments (traits), which could enhance prediction accuracy. ...
Integrating genomic-enabled prediction and high-throughput phenotyping in breeding for climate-resilient bread wheat
Genomic selection and high-throughput phenotyping (HTP) are promising tools to accelerate breeding gains for high-yielding and climate-resilient wheat varieties. Hence, our objective was to evaluate them for predicting ...
A consensus map for Ug99 stem rust resistance loci in wheat
The global effort to identify new sources of resistance to wheat stem rust, caused by Pucciniagraminis f. sp. tritici race group Ug99 has resulted in numerous studies reporting both qualitative genes and quantitative trait ...
Variability in glutenin subunit composition of Mediterranean durum wheat germplasm and its relationship with gluten strength
(Cambridge University Press, 2013)
The allelic composition at five glutenin loci was assessed by one-dimensional sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (1D SDS–PAGE) on a set of 155 landraces (from 21 Mediterranean countries) and 18 ...
The use of unbalanced historical data for genomic selection in an international wheat breeding program
Genomic selection (GS) offers breeders the possibility of using historic data and unbalanced breeding trials to form training populations for predicting the performance of new lines. However, when using datasets that are ...
Genome-wide analysis of the cellulose synthase-like (Csl) gene family in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Background: Hemicelluloses are a diverse group of complex, non-cellulosic polysaccharides, which constitute approximately one-third of the plant cell wall and find use as dietary fibres, food additives and raw materials ...
