Genes encoding plastid acetyl-CoA carboxylase and 3-phosphoglycerate kinase of the Triticum/Aegilops complex and the evolutionary history of polyploid wheat
The data suggest that the Acc-1 and Pgk-1 loci have different histories in different lineages, indicating genome mosaicity and significant intraspecific differentiation.
Development and mapping of microsatellite (SSR) markers in wheat
The efficiency of marker development could be increased in wheat by creating libraries from sheared rather than enzyme-digested DNA fragments for microsatellite screening, by focusing on microsatellites with the [ATT/TAA]n motif, and by adding an untemplated G-C clamp to the 5′-end of primers.
Microsatellite-based deletion bin system for the establishment of genetic-physical map relationships in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
The mapped microsatellite loci will be useful not only for deletion stock verifications but also for allocating associated QTLs to deletion bins where numerous ESTs that could be potential candidate genes are currently assigned.
Characterization of wheat-alien translocations conferring resistance to diseases and pests: current status
The present review summarizes the available data on wheat-alien transfers conferring resistance to diseases and pests and should be useful for further directed chromosome engineering aimed at producing superior germplasm.
Shifting the limits in wheat research and breeding using a fully annotated reference genome
This annotated reference sequence of wheat is a resource that can now drive disruptive innovation in wheat improvement, as this community resource establishes the foundation for accelerating wheat research and application through improved understanding of wheat biology and genomics-assisted breeding.
Development of a Virus-Induced Gene-Silencing System for Hexaploid Wheat and Its Use in Functional Analysis of the Lr21-Mediated Leaf Rust Resistance Pathway1
Development of protocols for use of BSMV to efficiently silence genes in hexaploid wheat are reported, indicating that B SMV-VIGS is a powerful tool for dissecting the genetic pathways of disease resistance in Hexaploids wheat.
Analysis of the bread wheat genome using whole genome shotgun sequencing
It is shown that the hexaploid genome is highly dynamic, with significant loss of gene family members on polyploidization and domestication, and an abundance of gene fragments.
Map-based cloning of leaf rust resistance gene Lr21 from the large and polyploid genome of bread wheat.
The map-based cloning of the leaf rust resistance gene Lr21, previously mapped to a gene-rich region at the distal end of chromosome arm 1DS of bread wheat, opens the door for cloning of many crop-specific agronomic traits located in the gene- rich regions of bread Wheat.
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 developed
