Pyramiding three bacterial blight resistance genes (xa5, xa13 and Xa21) using marker-assisted selection into indica rice cultivar PR106
Genes in combinations were found to provide high levels of resistance to the predominant Xoo isolates from the Punjab and six races of Xoo from the Philippines, and Xa21 was the most effective, followed by xa5.
Molecular marker analysis of kernel size and shape in bread wheat
Strategies for improving the wheat grain quality traits and the utility of such markers in marker-assisted selection (MAS) efforts are discussed.
QTL analysis for grain protein content using SSR markers and validation studies using NILs in bread wheat
Abstract.QTL interval mapping for grain protein content (GPC) in bread wheat was conducted for the first time, using a framework map based on a mapping population, which was available in the form of…
QTL mapping of 1000-kernel weight, kernel length, and kernel width in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
The identified genomic regions controlling wheat kernel size and shape can be targeted during further studies for their genetic dissection.
Mapping of quantitative trait Loci for grain iron and zinc concentration in diploid A genome wheat.
Identification of germplasm with high grain Fe and Zn and understanding the genetic basis of their accumulation are the prerequisites for manipulation of these micronutrients.
Microtuberization in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)
The genotype × cultural conditions interactions were significant indicating the importance of developing genotype-specific protocols to maximize microtuberization.
Identification of a microsatellite on chromosomes 6B and a STS on 7D of bread wheat showing an association with preharvest sprouting tolerance
The study here was undertaken to identify DNA markers linked with tolerance to PHS as these would allow indirect marker-assisted selection of PHS-tolerant genotypes with amber kernels in bread wheat.
Pyramiding of two bacterial blight resistance and a semidwarfing gene in Type 3 Basmati using marker-assisted selection
The BC2F3 progenies with both the BB resistance genes were highly resistant with lower lesion length than either of the genes individually, and selection was continued till F5 generation for higher recovery for Type 3 Basmati characteristics.
An integrated molecular linkage map of diploid wheat based on a Triticum boeoticum × T. monococcum RIL population
An integrated molecular linkage map of A genome diploid wheat based on 93 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from Triticum boeoticum × Triticum monococcum inter sub-specific cross is reported.
Evaluation and utilization of Aegilops and wild Triticum species for enhancing iron and zinc content in wheat
‘Chinese Spring’ (PhI) was used for inducing homoeologous chromosome pairing between Aegilops and wheat genomes and transferring these useful traits from the wild species to the elite wheat cultivars suggesting that the parental Aegilop donors possess a more efficient system for uptake and translocation of the micronutrients which could ultimately be utilized for wheat grain biofortification.
