Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is the most important crop for Turkey, which is also one of the gene centers of wheat (Gökgöl 1939; Vavilov 1950; Harlan 1971; Özkan et al. 2002). Genetic variability is of prime importance for the improvement of many crop species, including wheat, and nearly all crop improvement programs depend on genetic diversity in the(More)
Expressed sequenced tags containing simple sequence repeats (EST-SSRs) were used to identify molecular markers associated with yellow rust resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). A cross between yellow rust resistant (PI178383) and susceptible (Harmankaya99) wheat genotypes was performed and respective DNA pools from the resistant and susceptible F2(More)
We have previously reported Xgwm382 as a diagnostic marker for disease resistance against yellow rust in Izgi2001 × ES14 F2 population. Among the same earlier tested 230 primers, one SSR marker (Xgwm311) also amplified a fragment which is present in the resistant parent and in the resistant bulks, but absent in the susceptible parent and in the susceptible(More)
