Vernalization requirement duration in winter wheat is controlled by TaVRN-A1 at the protein level
Winter wheat requires a period of low temperatures to accelerate flowering (vernalization). This requirement could make winter wheat more vulnerable to elevated global temperature via insufficientExpand

Stripe Rust Resistance in the Wheat Cultivar Jagger is Due to Yr17 and a Novel Resistance Gene
Yellow rust, also known as stripe rust, is caused by Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici Eriks (PST) and is one of the most common and persistent wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) diseasesExpand

A single-nucleotide polymorphism that accounts for allelic variation in the Lr34 gene and leaf rust reaction in hard winter wheat
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks, is one of the most common and persistent wheat diseases in the US Great Plains. We report that the Lr34 gene was mapped in the center of a QTL for leafExpand

Quantitative Trait Loci Mapping for Tillering‐Related Traits in Two Switchgrass Populations
Phenotypic data for six tillering traits related to biomass yield in two populations were assessed in two field trials. Associations between phenotypic data and two preexisting linkage maps wereExpand

Genetic Mechanisms of Vernalization Requirement Duration in Winter Wheat Cultivars
Wheat is cultivated across more land area than any other grain crops. Wheat cultivars are classified as two general types: winter wheat with variable low temperature requirement for a properExpand

Wheat powdery mildew resistance gene Pm64 derived from wild emmer (Triticum turgidum var. dicoccoides) is tightly linked in repulsion with stripe rust resistance gene Yr5
Abstract Stripe rust and powdery mildew are both devastating diseases for durum and common wheat. Pyramiding of genes conferring resistance to one or more diseases in a single cultivar is anExpand

Mis-Spliced Lr34 Transcript Events in Winter Wheat
Lr34 in wheat is a non-race-specific gene that confers resistance against multiple fungal pathogens. The resistant allele Lr34 and the susceptible allele Lr34s can be distinguished by threeExpand

Molecular mapping of YrTZ2, a stripe rust resistance gene in wild emmer accession TZ-2 and its comparative analyses with Aegilops tauschii
Abstract Wheat stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst), is a devastating disease that can cause severe yield losses. Identification and utilization of stripe rust resistanceExpand
