A genome-wide association study (GWAS) for heading date (HD) was performed with a panel of 358 European winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties and 14 spring wheat varieties through the phenotypic evaluation of HD in field tests in eight environments. Genotyping data consisted of 770 mapped microsatellite loci and 7934 mapped SNP markers derived from(More)
The combination of irinotecan (CPT-11), bolus 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and folinic acid (FA) (Saltz regimen) has recently been questioned as first-line chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer after high early death rates due to gastrointestinal and thromboembolic events were reported in two US trials. Therefore, we carefully evaluated the safety and(More)
The genetic architecture of plant height was investigated in a set of 358 recent European winter wheat varieties plus 14 spring wheat varieties based on field data in eight environments. Genotyping of diagnostic markers revealed the Rht-D1b mutant allele in 58% of the investigated varieties, while the Rht-B1b mutant was only present in 7% of the varieties.(More)
The maintenance of plant genetic resources in living plant collections (genebanks) causes costs due to employment of staff, usage of buildings, equipment and consumables. Since this is especially challenging in vegetatively propagated material, studies were performed for the case of garlic, which is one of the major vegetatively maintained crops in the(More)
Grain weight, an essential yield component, is under strong genetic control and at the same time markedly influenced by the environment. Genetic analysis of the thousand grain weight (TGW) by genome-wide association study (GWAS) was performed with a panel of 358 European winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties and 14 spring wheat varieties using(More)
Garlic and shallot are important vegetable and spice plants, garlic is also a medicinal crop widely used throughout the world. Both belong to the genus Allium, which has been a main target of the taxonomical research at the IPK for many years. Therefore, the IPK’s living collection of Allium is one of the world’s largest special collections of this genus(More)
Genotypes with recombination events in the Triticum ventricosum introgression on chromosome 7D allowed to fine-map resistance gene Pch1, the main source of eyespot resistance in European winter wheat cultivars. Eyespot (also called Strawbreaker) is a common and serious fungal disease of winter wheat caused by the necrotrophic fungi Oculimacula yallundae and(More)
