Standard karyotype and nomenclature system for description of chromosome bands and structural aberrations in wheat (Triticum aestivum)
A standard karyotype based on N-banding, C-banding, and modified C-banding has been constructed for Triticum aestivum L. 'Chinese Spring'. An idiogram and a nomenclature system have been developedExpand

Sequence composition, organization, and evolution of the core Triticeae genome.
We investigated the composition and the basis of genome expansion in the core Triticeae genome using Aegilops tauschii, the D-genome donor of bread wheat. We sequenced an unfiltered genomic shotgunExpand

Recent advances in alien gene transfer in wheat
SummaryThe recent advances in alien gene transfer from distantly-related species into wheat are reviewed in the present paper. The main achievements during the last ten years include the greatExpand

Allopolyploidy alters gene expression in the highly stable hexaploid wheat
Hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum) contains triplicated genomes derived from three distinct species. To better understand how different genomes are coordinated in the same nucleus of the hexaploidExpand

Homoeologous recombination, chromosome engineering and crop improvement
Sears (1956) pioneered plant chromosome engineering 50 years ago by directed transfer of a leaf rust resistance gene from an alien chromosome to a wheat chromosome using X-ray irradiation and anExpand

Development of wheat scab symptoms is delayed in transgenic wheat plants that constitutively express a rice thaumatin-like protein gene
Abstract  The possibility of controlling wheat scab (caused by Fusarium graminearum Schw.) was explored by engineering wheat plants for constitutive expression of pathogenesis-related (PR) proteinExpand

Molecular characterization of a set of wheat deletion stocks for use in chromosome bin mapping of ESTs
Abstract. The objective of this study was molecular characterization of a set of deletion stocks and other aneuploids for use in chromosome bin mapping of ESTs in wheat. Wheat aneuploid stocksExpand

A novel Robertsonian translocation event leads to transfer of a stem rust resistance gene (Sr52) effective against race Ug99 from Dasypyrumvillosum into bread wheat
Stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici Eriks. & E. Henn.) (the causal agent of wheat stem rust) race Ug99 (also designated TTKSK) and its derivatives have defeated several important stem rustExpand

Molecular cytogenetic characterization of alien introgressions with gene Fhb3 for resistance to Fusarium head blight disease of wheat
Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance was identified in the alien species Leymus racemosus, and wheat-Leymus introgression lines with FHB resistance were reported previously. Detailed molecularExpand

Genome‐size Variation in Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum): Flow Cytometry and Cytology Reveal Rampant Aneuploidy
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), a native perennial dominant of the prairies of North America, has been targeted as a model herbaceous species for biofeedstock development. A fl owcytometric surveyExpand
