A QTL located on chromosome 4A associated with dormancy in white- and red-grained wheats of diverse origin
TLDR
It is concluded that the 4A QTL is a critical component of dormancy; associated with at least an intermediate dormancy on its own and a dormant phenotype when combined with the R gene in the red-grained genotype and as yet unidentified gene(s) in the white- Grained genotypes.
The tetrazolium dyes MTS and XTT provide new quantitative assays for superoxide and superoxide dismutase.
TLDR
The stable MTS and XTT formazans have high extinction coefficients in the visible range which enable sensitive detection and quantification of superoxide radicals, avoiding some of the problems inherent in assays based on production of the insoluble NBT formazan.
Establishment and characterisation of wheat genetic mapping populations
TLDR
These populations provide powerful tools for extensive mapping studies to determine the genetic factors controlling grain quality traits and other wheat characters of interest and are recognised in the models used.
Construction of three linkage maps in bread wheat, Triticum aestivum
TLDR
Genetic maps were compiled from the analysis of 160-180 doubled haploid lines derived from 3 crosses: Cranbrook × Halberd, CD87 × Katepwa, and Sunco × Tasman and it was found that many AFLP markers defined specific genetic loci in wheat across all 3 populations.
Pyramiding QTL increases seedling resistance to crown rot (Fusarium pseudograminearum) of wheat (Triticum aestivum)
TLDR
This work reports on work that has assessed the effectiveness of pyramiding QTL to improve resistance to crown rot in wheat and identifies three lines that represent a new level of seedling crown rot resistance in wheat.
The use of high resolution melting (HRM) to map single nucleotide polymorphism markers linked to a covered smut resistance gene in barley
TLDR
This is the first report on the application of the HRM technique to SNP detection and to rapid scoring of known cleaved amplified polymorphic sequence (CAPS) markers in plants.
Identification of novel QTL for resistance to crown rot in the doubled haploid wheat population 'W21MMT70' x 'Mendos'
TLDR
Three quantitative trait loci are different from those associated with crown rot resistance in other wheat populations that have been examined, and may represent an opportunity for pyramiding QTL to provide more durable resistance to crown rot.
Markers for seedling and adult plant crown rot resistance in four partially resistant bread wheat sources
TLDR
Flanking markers, most of which are less than 10 cM apart, have now been identified for each of the regions associated with crown rot resistance.
