Combining high-throughput phenotyping and genomic information to increase prediction and selection accuracy in wheat breeding
(Crop Science Society of America, 2018)
Genomics and phenomics have promised to revolutionize the field of plant breeding. The integration of these two fields has just begun and is being driven through big data by advances in next-generation sequencing and ...
Wheat diseases and pests : a guide for field identification
Breeding for enhanced zinc and iron concentration in CIMMYT spring wheat germplasm
Micronutrient malnutrition, resulting from dietary deficiency of important minerals such as zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe), is a widespread food-related health problem. Genetic enhancement of crops with elevated levels of these ...
Genome-wide association mapping for resistance to leaf rust, stripe rust and tan spot in wheat reveals potential candidate genes
Leaf rust (LR), stripe rust (YR) and tan spot (TS) are some of the important foliar diseases in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). To identify candidate resistance genes for these diseases in CIMMYT’s (International Maize and ...
Molecular approaches for designing heat tolerant wheat
Global warming is causing changes in temperature rapidly for over two decades. The increased temperature during reproductive phase of plant growth has emerged as a serious problem all over the world. Constant or transitory ...
Genetic analysis of adult plant resistance to yellow rust and leaf rust in common spring wheat Quaiu 3
Identifying and utilizing rust resistance genes in wheat has been hampered by the continuous and rapid emergence of new pathogen races. A major focus of many wheat breeding programs is achieving durable adult plant resistance ...
Adaptation and performance of CIMMYT spring wheat genotypes targeted to high rainfall areas of the world
The high rainfall mega-environment [mega environment 2 (ME2)], characterized by more than 500 mm rainfall during wheat season, is one of the 12 mega-environments on which the global wheat breeding program of the International ...
