QTL mapping of 1000-kernel weight, kernel length, and kernel width in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Kernel size and morphology influence the market value and milling yield of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The objective of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controllingExpand

Mapping of quantitative trait Loci for grain iron and zinc concentration in diploid A genome wheat.
Micronutrients, especially iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn), are deficient in the diets of people in underdeveloped countries. Biofortification of food crops is the best approach for alleviating theExpand

Evaluation and utilization of Aegilops and wild Triticum species for enhancing iron and zinc content in wheat
Grains of 80 accessions of nine species of wild Triticum and Aegilops along with 15 semi-dwarf cultivars of bread and durum wheat grown over 2 years at Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, wereExpand

An integrated molecular linkage map of diploid wheat based on a Triticum boeoticum × T. monococcum RIL population
Diploid A genome species of wheat harbour immense variability for biotic stresses and productivity traits, and these could be transferred efficiently to hexaploid wheat through marker assistedExpand

Characterization and mapping of cryptic alien introgression from Aegilops geniculata with new leaf rust and stripe rust resistance genes Lr57 and Yr40 in wheat
Leaf rust and stripe rust are important foliar diseases of wheat worldwide. Leaf rust and stripe rust resistant introgression lines were developed by induced homoeologous chromosome pairing betweenExpand

Mapping of adult plant stripe rust resistance genes in diploid A genome wheat species and their transfer to bread wheat
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis West. f.sp. tritici, is one of the most damaging diseases of wheat worldwide. Forty genes for stripe rust resistance have been catalogued so far, but theExpand

Identification and mapping of a tiller inhibition gene (tin3) in wheat
Tillering is one of the most important agronomic traits in cereal crops because tiller number per plant determines the number of spikes or panicles per plant, a key component of grain yield and/orExpand

Development of Triticum turgidum subsp. durum--Aegilops longissima amphiploids with high iron and zinc content through unreduced gamete formation in F1 hybrids.
Four different interspecific hybrids involving three different accessions of Aegilops longissima Schweinf. & Muschl. with high grain iron and zinc content and three Triticum turgidum L. subsp. durumExpand

Kernel morphometric traits in hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) are modulated by intricate QTL × QTL and genotype × environment interactions
Abstract Wheat kernel size and shape influence its flour yield and market price. A hexaploid wheat population of 185 recombinant inbred lines was evaluated for five kernel morphometric traits namely,Expand

Aegilops kotschyi and Aegilops tauschii as sources for higher levels of grain Iron and Zinc
Micronutrient malnutrition affects a very large proportion of the world's population. For combating micronutrient malnutrition, biofortification through genetic manipulation has been proposed as anExpand
