Pyramiding three bacterial blight resistance genes (xa5, xa13 and Xa21) using marker-assisted selection into indica rice cultivar PR106
Abstract Bacterial blight (BB) of rice caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) is a major disease of rice in several countries. Three BB resistance genes, xa5, xa13 and Xa21, were pyramidedExpand

Molecular marker analysis of kernel size and shape in bread wheat
The economic value of wheat grain is determined by the kernel morphology which is an important parameter for manufacturing different food products requiring specific grain characteristics. AlthoughExpand

QTL mapping of 1000-kernel weight, kernel length, and kernel width in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Kernel size and morphology influence the market value and milling yield of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The objective of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controllingExpand

Identification of a microsatellite on chromosomes 6B and a STS on 7D of bread wheat showing an association with preharvest sprouting tolerance
Abstract In bread wheat, the transfer of tolerance to preharvest sprouting (PHS) that is associated with genotypes having red kernel colour to genotypes with amber kernels is difficult usingExpand

An integrated molecular linkage map of diploid wheat based on a Triticum boeoticum × T. monococcum RIL population
Diploid A genome species of wheat harbour immense variability for biotic stresses and productivity traits, and these could be transferred efficiently to hexaploid wheat through marker assistedExpand

Characterization and mapping of cryptic alien introgression from Aegilops geniculata with new leaf rust and stripe rust resistance genes Lr57 and Yr40 in wheat
Leaf rust and stripe rust are important foliar diseases of wheat worldwide. Leaf rust and stripe rust resistant introgression lines were developed by induced homoeologous chromosome pairing betweenExpand

Identification of inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers associated with seed size in wheat
Abstract The feasibility of identifying inter-simple sequence repeat markers associated with seed weight in hexaploid wheat was tested using 113 recombinant inbred lines developed by the single-seedExpand

Identification and mapping of a tiller inhibition gene (tin3) in wheat
Tillering is one of the most important agronomic traits in cereal crops because tiller number per plant determines the number of spikes or panicles per plant, a key component of grain yield and/orExpand

Kernel morphometric traits in hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) are modulated by intricate QTL × QTL and genotype × environment interactions
Abstract Wheat kernel size and shape influence its flour yield and market price. A hexaploid wheat population of 185 recombinant inbred lines was evaluated for five kernel morphometric traits namely,Expand

Aegilops kotschyi and Aegilops tauschii as sources for higher levels of grain Iron and Zinc
Micronutrient malnutrition affects a very large proportion of the world's population. For combating micronutrient malnutrition, biofortification through genetic manipulation has been proposed as anExpand
