Prevalence of puroindoline grain hardness genotypes among historically significant North American spring and winter wheats
Grain hardness (hard or soft kernel texture) is the single most important trait in determining the utilization and marketing of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Puroindoline a and b proteins representExpand

RFLP Evaluation of Nine Medicago Accessions Representing the Original Germplasm Sources for North American Alfalfa Cultivars
All alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) cultivars grown in North America originate from nine germplasm sources introduced into the USA from different geographic regions. Nine accessions representing theExpand

Complementary Gene Interactions in Alfalfa are Greater in Autotetraploids than Diploids
Greater complementary gene interaction in autotetraploid alfalfa (Medicago sativa L., 2n=4x=32) may explain differences in vigor and breeding behavior between diploids and autotetraploids.Expand

Identifying QTL for high-temperature adult-plant resistance to stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici) in the spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar ‘Louise’
Over time, many single, all-stage resistance genes to stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici) in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) are circumvented by race changes in the pathogen. In contrast,Expand

Comparison of a modified assay method for the endopeptidase marker Ep‐D1b with the Sequence Tag Site marker XustSSR2001–7DL for strawbreaker foot rot resistance in wheat
The endopeptidase marker Ep-D1b and Sequence Tag Site (STS) marker XustSSR2001-7DL were reported to be closely associated with the most effective resistance gene (Pch1) in wheat (Triticum aestivumExpand
