The degree of aluminium tolerance varies widely across cereal species, with oats (Avena spp.) being among the most tolerant. The objective of this study was to identify molecular markers linked to aluminium tolerance in the diploid oat A. strigosa. Restriction fragment length polymorphism markers were tested in regions where comparative mapping indicated(More)
A study was undertaken to investigate the growth performance and carcass and meat quality of pigs (BW = 52 to 108 kg) fed oat-based (Avena sativa L.) diets containing four levels of mixed-linkage (1 --> 3), (1 --> 4)-beta-D-glucans. One hundred sixty pigs-80 barrows and 80 gilts (average starting BW = 52.7 kg)--were allocated to one of five diets: a(More)
Seven pairs of oat near-isogenic lines (NILs) (Kibite in Crop Sci 41:277–278, 2001) contrasting for the Dw6 dwarfing gene were used to test for correlation between tall/dwarf phenotype and polymorphic genotype using restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and other molecular markers selected from the Kanota × Ogle (K×O) (Wight et al. in Genome(More)
In a study designed to develop a more efficient breeding method for concurrent protein-yield improvements in wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em. Thell), 7 base populations [2 F2's, 1 intermated F2 (IF2) and 4 partial backcross (PBC) populations] developed from biparental crosses involving 2 Canadian hard red spring (CHRS) and 2 Canadian utility (CU) wheat(More)
