A population of 96 doubled haploid lines (DHLs) was prepared from F1 plants of the hexaploid wheat cross Chinese Spring × SQ1 (a high abscisic acid-expressing breeding line) and was mapped with 567 RFLP, AFLP, SSR, morphological and biochemical markers covering all 21 chromosomes, with a total map length of 3,522 cM. Although the map lengths for each genome(More)
Previous studies with 95 bread wheat doubled haploid lines (DHLs) from the cross Chinese Spring (CS)xSQ1 trialled over 24 yearxtreatmentxlocations identified major yield quantitative trait loci (QTLs) in homoeologous locations on 7AL and 7BL, expressed mainly under stressed and non-stressed conditions, respectively. SQ1 and CS contributed alleles increasing(More)
A set of 96 winter wheat accessions sampled from a variety of geographic origins, including cultivars and breeding lines, were characterized with 46 genome-wide SSR loci for genetic diversity and population structure. The genetic diversity within these accessions was examined using a genetic distance-based and a model-based clustering method. The(More)
The classical Osborne wheat protein fractions (albumins, globulins, gliadins, and glutenins), as well as several proteins from each of the four subunits of gliadin using SDS-PAGE analyses, were determined in the grain of five bread (T. aestivum L.) and five durum wheat (T. durum Desf.) genotypes. In addition, content of tryptophan and wet gluten were(More)
Genetic analyses and association mapping were performed on a winter wheat core collection of 96 accessions sampled from a variety of geographic origins. Twenty-four agronomic traits were evaluated over 3 years under fully irrigated, rainfed and drought treatments. Grain yield was the most sensitive trait to water deficit and was highly correlated with(More)
There are only a few reports about the relationship between tissue culture and agronomic traits in wheat. In an attempt to enlarge the knowledge in this area, 96 wheat genotypes of worldwide origin were evaluated for their tissue culture response as well as the agronomic performance in the three-year field trials. Plant regeneration was achieved from(More)

Cereals-based food is one of the major source of Maillard reaction products in the diet. Free amino acids and reducing sugars are considered to be the main precursors in the formation of these heat-induced compounds. In order to determine genetic resources with reduced potential for acrylamide formation, the content of sugars as well as free asparagine were(More)
Immunity to food antigens (gliadin, cow's milk proteins) is in the centre of the attention of modern medicine focused on the prevention of diseases, prevention which is based on the use of appropriate restriction diet. Detection of the enhanced levels of the immune reactions to antigen(s) present in food is from this point of view of great importance(More)
Grain yield is a result of the combined effects of genotype, environment and their interaction. The importance of the genotype × environment interaction is that it causes different reactions of maize hybrids when they are grown in different environments. This study was performed to analyse discriminativeness, representativeness and relationships of test(More)
