Genetically stable deletion lines of Agropyron cristatum chromosome 6P in common wheat background were generated, which allowed for physical mapping of 255 6P-specific STS markers and leaf rust resistance gene(s). Chromosomal deletion lines are valuable tools for gene discovery and localization. The chromosome 6P of Agropyron cristatum (2n = 4x = 28, PPPP)(More)
The narrow genetic background of wheat is the primary factor that has restricted the improvement of crop yield in recent years. The kernel number per spike is the most important factor of the many potential characteristics that determine wheat yield. Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertn., a wild relative of wheat, has the characteristics of superior numbers of(More)
Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertn. (2n = 4x = 28, PPPP) not only is cultivated as pasture fodder but also could provide many desirable genes for wheat improvement. It is critical to obtain common wheat-A. cristatum alien disomic addition lines to locate the desired genes on the P genome chromosomes. Comparative analysis of the homoeologous relationships(More)
Agropyron cristatum is a wild grass of the tribe Triticeae that is widely grown in harsh environments. As a wild relative of wheat, A. cristatum carries many resistance genes that could be used to broaden the genetic diversity of wheat. Here, we report the transcriptome sequencing of the flag leaf and young spike tissues of a representative tetraploid A.(More)
The narrow genetic background restricts wheat yield and quality improvement. The wild relatives of wheat are the huge gene pools for wheat improvement and can broaden its genetic basis. Production of wheat-alien translocation lines can transfer alien genes to wheat. So it is important to develop an efficient method to induce wheat-alien chromosome(More)
A novel broad-spectrum powdery mildew resistance gene PmPB74 was identified in wheat- Agropyron cristatum introgression line Pubing 74. Development of wheat cultivars with broad-spectrum, durable resistance to powdery mildew has been restricted by lack of superior genetic resources. In this study, a wheat-A. cristatum introgression line Pubing 74,(More)
Agropyron cristatum (2n = 4x = 28, PPPP) is a wild relative of common wheat and confers several desirable agronomic traits to wheat, such as high grain number per spike and enhanced resistance to certain diseases. Development of wheat - A. cristatum 6P translocation lines facilitates its utilization in wheat improvement. In this study, 26 wheat - A.(More)
