Advanced phenotyping offers opportunities for improved breeding of forage and turf species.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Advanced phenotyping, i.e. the application of automated, high-throughput methods to characterize plant architecture and performance, has the potential to accelerate breedingExpand

QTL analysis of seed yield components in red clover (Trifolium pratense L.)
Cultivars of red clover (Trifolium pratense L.), an important forage crop in temperate regions, are often characterised by an unsatisfactory level of seed yield, leading to high production costs.Expand

Genetic variation, population structure, and linkage disequilibrium in European elite germplasm of perennial ryegrass.
Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) is a highly valued temperate climate grass species grown as forage crop and for amenity uses. Due to its outbreeding nature and recent domestication, a highExpand

The Perennial Ryegrass GenomeZipper: Targeted Use of Genome Resources for Comparative Grass Genomics1[C][W]
Summary: The GenomeZipper presented here is a model of the perennial ryegrass genome on the basis of conserved synteny to barley, Brachypodium, rice, and sorghum. Whole-genome sequences establishedExpand

Genome Wide Allele Frequency Fingerprints (GWAFFs) of Populations via Genotyping by Sequencing
Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS) is an excellent tool for characterising genetic variation between plant genomes. To date, its use has been reported only for genotyping of single individuals. However,Expand

Consistent detection of QTLs for crown rust resistance in Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.) across environments and phenotyping methods
Crown rust, caused by Puccinia coronata f. sp. lolii, is one of the most important diseases of temperate forage grasses, such as ryegrasses (Lolium spp.), affecting yield and nutritional quality.Expand

Genetic characterisation of seed yield and fertility traits in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)
Seed yield is a trait of major interest for the key grassland species Lolium perenne L. An F2 mapping population of perennial ryegrass (VrnA), recently characterised for vernalisation response, wasExpand

A transcriptome map of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)
BackgroundSingle nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are increasingly becoming the DNA marker system of choice due to their prevalence in the genome and their ability to be used in highly multiplexedExpand

Fine-mapping of a major QTL controlling angular leaf spot resistance in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Key messageA major QTL for angular leaf spot resistance in the common bean accession G5686 was fine-mapped to a region containing 36 candidate genes. Markers have been developed for marker-assistedExpand
