Transferable EST-SSR markers for the study of polymorphism and genetic diversity in bread wheat
Nearly 900 SSRs (simple sequence repeats) were identified among 15,000 ESTs (expressed sequence tags) belonging to bread wheat ( Triticum aestivum L.). The SSRs were defined by their minimum length,Expand

An accurate DNA marker assay for stem rust resistance gene Sr2 in wheat
The stem rust resistance gene Sr2 has provided broad-spectrum protection against stem rust (Pucciniagraminis Pers. f. sp. tritici) since its wide spread deployment in wheat from the 1940s. BecauseExpand
