This consensus map of stem rust genes, QTLs, and molecular markers will facilitate the identification of new resistance genes and provide a resource of in formation for development of new markers for breeding wheat varieties resistant to Ug99. The global effort to identify new sources of resistance to wheat stem rust, caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp.(More)
Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) is a high-throughput genotyping approach that is starting to be used in several crop species, including bread wheat. Anchoring GBS tags on chromosomes is an important step towards utilizing them for wheat genetic improvement. Here we use genetic linkage mapping to construct a consensus map containing 28644 GBS markers. Three(More)
Races of stem rust fungus pose a major threat to wheat production worldwide. We mapped adult plant resistance (APR) to Ug99 in 141 lines of a PBW343/Muu recombinant inbred lines (RILs) population by phenotyping them for three seasons at Njoro, Kenya in field trials and genotyping them with Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) markers. Moderately susceptible(More)
This study examines genomic prediction within 8416 Mexican landrace accessions and 2403 Iranian landrace accessions stored in gene banks. The Mexican and Iranian collections were evaluated in separate field trials, including an optimum environment for several traits, and in two separate environments (drought, D and heat, H) for the highly heritable traits,(More)

Let α, β, γ and δ be complex numbers such that α = 0. Define Φ on D = C \ {0} as Φ(w, zw ; z) = w δ βw + α zw w + γ , z ∈ E, where E = {z : |z| < 1}. We find the sufficient conditions for analytic function p, p(z) = 0 and analytic univalent functions q 1 , q 1 (z) = 0 and q 2 , q 2 (z) = 0 in E such that Φ(q 1 (z), zq 1 (z); z) ≺ Φ(p(z), zp (z); z) ≺ Φ(q 2(More)
Image compression is a very important issue for several applications in the area of multimedia communications, the objective being reduction of storage and transmission costs. Many efficient coding techniques have been developed for various applications. Amongst them, the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) has been recommended for compression of(More)
Telemedicine, among other things, involves storage and transmission of medical images, popularly known as teleradiology. Due to constraints on bandwidth and storage capacity, a medical image may be needed to be compressed before transmission/storage. Among various compression techniques, transform-based techniques that convert an image in spatial domain(More)
We demonstrate that Lr67/Yr46 has pleiotropic effect on stem rust and powdery mildew resistance and is associated with leaf tip necrosis. Genes are designated as Sr55, Pm46 and Ltn3 , respectively. Wheat (Triticum aestivum) accession RL6077, known to carry the pleiotropic slow rusting leaf and yellow rust resistance genes Lr67/Yr46 in Thatcher background,(More)
