Genomic prediction of genetic values for resistance to wheat rusts
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 ...
Prediction of Genetic Values of Quantitative Traits in Plant Breeding Using Pedigree and Molecular Markers
The availability of dense molecular markers has made possible the use of genomic selection (GS) for plant breeding. However, the evaluation of models for GS in real plant populations is very limited. This article evaluates ...
Quantitative trait loci mapping for adult-plant resistance to powdery mildew in bread wheat
(American Phytopathological Society, 2006)
Powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, is a major disease to wheat (Triticum aestivum) worldwide. Use of adult-plant resistance (APR) is an effective method to develop wheat cultivars with durable ...
Resistance to stem rust Ug99 in six bread wheat cultivars maps to chromosome 6DS
More than 80 % of the worldwide wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) area is currently sown with varieties susceptible to the Ug99 race group of stem rust fungus. However, wheat lines Niini, Tinkio, Coni, Pfunye, Blouk, and Ripper ...
New deep learning genomic-based prediction model for multiple traits with binary, ordinal, and continuous phenotypes
(Genetics Society of America, 2019)
Multiple-trait experiments with mixed phenotypes (binary, ordinal and continuous) are not rare in animal and plant breeding programs. However, there is a lack of statistical models that can exploit the correlation between ...
An accurate DNA marker assay for stem rust resistance gene Sr2 in wheat
The stem rust resistance gene Sr2 has provided broad-spectrum protection against stem rust (Puccinia graminis Pers. f. sp. tritici) since its wide spread deployment in wheat from the 1940s. Because Sr2 confers partial ...
