In silico analysis on frequency and distribution of microsatellites in ESTs of some cereal species.
During the last decade microsatellites or SSRs (simple sequence repeats) have been proven to be the markers of choice in plant genetics research and for breeding purposes because of theirExpand

A physical, genetic and functional sequence assembly of the barley genome
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is among the world’s earliest domesticated and most important crop plants. It is diploid with a large haploid genome of 5.1 gigabases (Gb). Here we present an integratedExpand

A chromosome conformation capture ordered sequence of the barley genome.
Cereal grasses of the Triticeae tribe have been the major food source in temperate regions since the dawn of agriculture. Their large genomes are characterized by a high content of repetitiveExpand

Boron-Toxicity Tolerance in Barley Arising from Efflux Transporter Amplification
Both limiting and toxic soil concentrations of the essential micronutrient boron represent major limitations to crop production worldwide. We identified Bot1, a BOR1 ortholog, as the gene responsibleExpand

Extreme Population-Dependent Linkage Disequilibrium Detected in an Inbreeding Plant Species, Hordeum vulgare
In human genetics a detailed knowledge of linkage disequilibrium (LD) is considered a prerequisite for effective population-based, high-resolution gene mapping and cloning. Similar opportunitiesExpand

Mapping loci associated with flour colour in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Abstract An RFLP map constructed using 150 single seed descent (SSD) lines from a cross between two hexaploid wheat varieties (‘Schomburgk’בYarralinka’) was used to identify loci controlling flourExpand

The genetic control of milling yield, dough rheology and baking quality of wheat
Improving the end-use quality of wheat is a key target for many breeding programmes. With the exception of the relationship between glutenin alleles and some dough rheological characters, knowledgeExpand

Breeding Technologies to Increase Crop Production in a Changing World
To feed the several billion people living on this planet, the production of high-quality food must increase with reduced inputs, but this accomplishment will be particularly challenging in the faceExpand

Genetic and genomic tools to improve drought tolerance in wheat.
Tolerance to drought is a quantitative trait, with a complex phenotype, often confounded by plant phenology. Breeding for drought tolerance is further complicated since several types of abioticExpand

Interspecific transferability and comparative mapping of barley EST-SSR markers in wheat, rye and rice
Abstract Recent increase in the availability of expressed sequence tag (EST) data has facilitated the development of microsatellite or simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers in a number of plantExpand
