Diversity arrays technology (DArT) for high-throughput profiling of the hexaploid wheat genome
Despite a substantial investment in the development of panels of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers, the simple sequence repeat (SSR) technology with a limited multiplexing capabilityExpand

Molecular mapping of the wheat powdery mildew resistance gene Pm24 and marker validation for molecular breeding
Abstract Molecular markers were identified in common wheat for the Pm24 locus conferring resistance to different isolates of the powdery mildew pathogen, Erysiphe graminis DM f. sp. tritici (Em.Expand

Effects of environment, disease progress, plant height and heading date on the detection of QTLs for resistance to Fusarium head blight in an European winter wheat cross
In order to characterise quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for Type I and Type II resistance against Fusarium head blight (FHB) in wheat, a population of recombinant inbred lines derived from the crossExpand

Powdery mildew resistance gene Pm22 in cultivar Virest is a member of the complex Pm1 locus in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em Thell.)
Abstract The powdery mildew resistance gene Pm22, identified in the Italian wheat cultivar Virest and originally assigned to wheat chromosome 1D, was mapped to chromosome 7A with the aid of molecularExpand

Variation in DNA methylation patterns of grapevine somaclones (Vitis vinifera L.)
BackgroundIn traditional vine areas, the production should present a typicity that partly depends on the grapevine variety. Therefore, vine improvement is considered difficult because of the limitedExpand

Inheritance of resistance to Fusarium head blight in three European winter wheat populations
Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance is of particular importance in wheat breeding programmes due to the detrimental effects of this fungal disease on human and animal health, yield and grainExpand

Localisation of genes for resistance against Blumeria graminis f.sp. hordei and Puccinia graminis in a cross between a barley cultivar and a wild barley (Hordeum vulgare ssp. spontaneum) line
Abstract.The aims of this investigation have been to map new (quantitative) resistance genes against powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f.sp. hordei L., and leaf rust, caused by PucciniaExpand

Chromosomal location of genes for resistance to powdery mildew in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em Thell.). 9. Gene MlZec1 from the Triticum dicoccoides-derived wheat line Zecoi-1
The Triticum dicoccoides-derived wheat line Zecoi-1 provides effective protection against powdery mildew. F3 segregation analysis of Chinese Spring × Zecoi-1 hybrids showed that resistance in lineExpand

Mapping of powdery mildew and leaf rust resistance genes on the wheat‐rye translocated chromosome T1BL·1RS using molecular and biochemical markers
Powdery mildew and leaf rust resistance genes on the 1RS arm of the T1BL.1RS translocated chromosome were mapped in relation to the Sec-1 locus and AFLP and restriction fragment length polymorphismExpand

Genetic and physical mapping of photoperiod insensitive gene Ppd-B1 in common wheat
Photoperiod response is a major determinant of duration of growing stages in wheat. Conscious selection for these photoperiod response genes in plant breeding programs will yield genotypes withExpand
