A comprehensive genetic map of sugarcane that provides enhanced map coverage and integrates high-throughput Diversity Array Technology (DArT) markers
BackgroundSugarcane genetic mapping has lagged behind other crops due to its complex autopolyploid genome structure. Modern sugarcane cultivars have from 110-120 chromosomes and are in generalExpand

Comparative mapping in the Poaceae family reveals translocations in the complex polyploid genome of sugarcane
BackgroundThe understanding of sugarcane genetics has lagged behind that of other members of the Poaceae family such as wheat, rice, barley and sorghum mainly due to the complexity, size andExpand

The genome structure of the 1-FEH genes in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.): new markers to track stem carbohydrates and grain filling QTLs in breeding
Terminal drought tolerance of wheat is a major target in many areas in the world and is a particular focus in Western Australia. It is widely considered to relate to water soluble carbohydrate (WSC)Expand

Analysis of the resistance mechanisms in sugarcane during Sporisorium scitamineum infection using RNA-seq and microscopy
Smut caused by biotrophic fungus Sporisorium scitamineum is a major disease of cultivated sugarcane that can cause considerable yield losses. It has been suggested in literature that there are atExpand

Haplotype analyses in wheat for complex traits: tracking the chromosome 3B and 7B regions associated with late maturity alpha amylase (LMA) in breeding programs
The quantitative trait loci (QTLs) on chromosomes 7BL and 3BS from Halberd have been used as a major source of tolerance to late maturity α amylase (LMA) within Australian wheat breeding programs.Expand
