Unlocking the genetic diversity of Creole wheats
(Nuture Publishing Group, 2016)
Climate change and slow yield gains pose a major threat to global wheat production. Underutilized genetic resources including landraces and wild relatives are key elements for developing high-yielding and climate-resilient ...
Identification of genomic associations for adult plant resistance in the background of popular South Asian wheat cultivar, PBW343
Rusts, a fungal disease as old as its host plant wheat, has caused havoc for over 8000 years. As the rust pathogens can evolve into new virulent races which quickly defeat the resistance that primarily rely on race ...
Genomic prediction of genetic values for resistance to wheat rusts
(Crop Science Society of America, 2012)
Durable resistance to the rust diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) can be achieved by developing lines that have race-nonspecific adult plant resistance conferred by multiple minor slow-rusting genes. Genomic selection ...
Diversity analysis of 80,000 wheat accessions reveals consequences and opportunities of selection footprints
(Nature Publishing Group, 2020)
From genebank to field-leveraging genomics to identify and bring novel native variation to breeding pools
(CIMMYT; SAGARPA; CGIAR, 2016)
Potentially valuable genetic variation, the raw material for crop improvement, remains untapped on genebank shelves, at a time when challenges to crop production are unprecedented. Genebanks should NOT be museums. They ...
Genomic prediction of gene bank wheat landraces
(Genetics Society of America, 2016)
This study examines genomic prediction within 8416 Mexican landrace accessions and 2403 Iranian landrace accessions stored in gene banks. The Mexican and Iranian collections were evaluated in separate field trials, including ...
An informational view of accession rarity and allele specificity in germplasm banks for management and conservation
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Germplasm banks are growing in their importance, number of accessions and amount of characterization data, with a large emphasis on molecular genetic markers. In this work, we offer an integrated view of accessions and ...
