Mapping a major gene for growth habit and QTLs for ascochyta blight resistance and flowering time in a population between chickpea and Cicer reticulatum
Ascochyta blight is a devastating disease of chickpea. Breeders have been trying to introduce resistance from wild Cicer into cultivated chickpea, however, the effort is hampered by the frequentExpand

The complex jujube genome provides insights into fruit tree biology
The jujube (Ziziphus jujuba Mill.), a member of family Rhamnaceae, is a major dry fruit and a traditional herbal medicine for more than one billion people. Here we present a high-quality sequence forExpand

Production of viable male unreduced gametes in Brassica interspecific hybrids is genotype specific and stimulated by cold temperatures
BackgroundUnreduced gametes (gametes with the somatic chromosome number) may provide a pathway for evolutionary speciation via allopolyploid formation. We evaluated the effect of genotype andExpand

Flower numbers, pod production, pollen viability, and pistil function are reduced and flower and pod abortion increased in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) under terminal drought
Terminal drought during the reproductive stage is a major constraint to yield of chickpea in many regions of the world. Termination of watering (WS) during podding in a small-seeded desi chickpeaExpand

Arsenic toxicity in plants: Cellular and molecular mechanisms of its transport and metabolism
Abstract Arsenic (As), a naturally-occurring metalloid, is not essential for plant growth, but it can accumulate in plants to toxic levels. As a result, it can enter the food chain and pose healthExpand

Development of near-isogenic lines for a major QTL on 3BL conferring Fusarium crown rot resistance in hexaploid wheat
By essentially fixing the genetic background, near-isogenic lines (NILs) are ideal for studies of the function of specific loci. We report in this paper the development of NILs for a major QTLExpand

Application of RAPD and ISSR markers to analyse molecular relationships in Grevillea (Proteaceae)
The potential of RAPD and ISSR markers to construct molecular relationships of Grevillea was evaluated with 23 RAPD and 12 ISSR primers. The 16 genotypes representing 12 species and 3 subspecies ofExpand

Microspore culture preferentially selects unreduced (2n) gametes from an interspecific hybrid of Brassica napus L. × Brassica carinata Braun
We analysed the products of male meiosis in microspore-derived progeny from a Brassica napus (AACnCn) × Brassica carinata (BBCcCc) interspecific hybrid (ABCnCc). Genotyping at 102 microsatelliteExpand

Genotypic effects on the frequency of homoeologous and homologous recombination in Brassica napus × B. carinata hybrids
We investigated the influence of genotype on homoeologous and homologous recombination frequency in eight different Brassica napus (AACnCn) × B. carinata (BBCcCc) interspecific hybrids (genomeExpand
