Silene latifolia represents one of the best-studied plant sex chromosome systems. A new approach using RNA-seq data has recently identified hundreds of new sex-linked genes in this species. However, this approach is expected to miss genes that are either not expressed or are expressed at low levels in the tissue(s) used for RNA-seq. Therefore other(More)
Pyramiding QTL from multiple sources for FHB resistance presents an opportunity to enhance the FHB resistance of elite wheat germplasm. Mapping FHB resistance QTL directly in wheat breeding populations would eliminate the need for purpose-built mapping populations and thus accelerate marker-assisted pyramiding efforts. In this study, we demonstrate that(More)
