Linkage maps are an integral resource for dissection of complex genetic traits in plant and animal species. Canonical map construction follows a well-established workflow: an initial discovery phase where genetic markers are mined from a small pool of individuals, followed by genotyping of selected mapping populations using sets of marker panels. A newly(More)
Thirty-two barley cultivars grown in Spain, 18 of the two-row type and 14 of the six-row type, were screened for plant regeneration from cultured immature embryos. Although there was much variation in regeneration capacity among the cultivars, plants were obtained from all cultivars except Almunia. No statistical differences were found in the percentage of(More)
Different pretreatments were given to anthers of barley before culturing, and their effects assessed on the frequency of embryos and green doubled haploid plants produced. Mannitol pretreatment was better than cold pretreatment for some low responding cultivars. Optimal concentration of mannitol for pretreatment depended on cultivar. Low responding(More)
This paper is concerned with a novel statistical–genetic approach for the construction of linkage maps in populations obtained from reciprocal translocation heterozygotes of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). Using standard linkage analysis, translocations usually lead to ‘pseudo-linkage’: the mixing up of markers from the chromosomes involved in the(More)
Haploid plants were regenerated from cultured unfertilized ovaries of Hordeum vulgare L. (barley). Optimal response was obtained by the addition of 0.6 μM 4-chloro-2-methylphenoxyacetic acid (MCPA), 2.8 μM indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and 4.4 μM 6-benzyladenine (BA) in the N6 medium. Further increase in the rate of callus formation and the number of green(More)
The aim of this work was to study the effects of colchicine application on chromosome doubling and androgenic response in anther and microspore culture of different bread wheat genotypes. Colchicine was applied during a mannitol stress pretreatment or during the first 48 h of culture at concentrations of 0, 150 and 300 mg l−1. When colchicine was applied(More)
Recent advances in high-throughput genotyping have made it easier to combine information from different mapping populations into consensus genetic maps, which provide increased marker density and genome coverage compared to individual maps. Previously, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-based genotyping platform was developed and used to genotype 373(More)
The ferric-chelate reductase (FC-R) activity of mesophyll protoplasts isolated from Fe-sufficient (control) and Fe-deficient sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) leaves has been characterized. Measurements were made in an ionic environment similar to that in the apoplastic space of the sugar beet mesophyll cells. The FC-R activity of Fe-sufficient and Fe-deficient(More)
A population comprising 102 doubled haploid lines were produced from a cross between Beka, a barley cultivar widely grown in Spain, and Logan, a north American cultivar with inherently low protein content, a character considered to derive from the cultivar Karl. The intentions were to determine whether low-nitrogen malting barleys could be developed in(More)
Seed dormancy in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is one of the most important parameters affecting malting. Seed dormancy is quantitatively inherited and variously influenced by the environment. The objectives of the present study were to determine the genome location and effects of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) involved in the expression of seed dormancy in a(More)
