The exponential development of molecular markers enables a more effective study of the genetic architecture of traits of economic importance, like test weight in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), for which a high value is desired by most end-users. The association mapping (AM) method now allows more precise exploration of the entire genome. AM requires… (More)
Five genomic prediction models were applied to three wheat agronomic traits—grain yield, heading date and grain test weight—in three breeding populations, each comprising about 350 doubled haploid or recombinant inbred lines evaluated in three locations during a 3-year period. The prediction accuracy, measured as the correlation between genomic estimated… (More)
Septoria tritici blotch (STB), caused by the ascomycete Mycosphaerella graminicola, is one of the most ubiquitous and important diseases of bread wheat worldwide. The aim of this study was to identify markers linked to loci conferring resistance to STB from seven biparental populations. Linkage analysis, meta-analysis and association mapping were combined… (More)
In order to understand the performance of photonic bandgap (PBG) structures under realistic high gradient, high power, high repetition rate operation, a PBG accelerator structure was designed and tested at X-Band (11.424 GHz). The structure consisted of a single test cell with matching cells before and after the structure. The design followed principles… (More)
The ascomycete Mycosphaerella graminicola is the causal agent of septoria tritici blotch (STB), one of the most destructive foliar diseases of bread and durum wheat globally, particularly in temperate humid areas. A screening of the French bread wheat cultivars Apache and Balance with 30 M. graminicola isolates revealed a pattern of resistant responses that… (More)
Pneumobilia can lead to artifacts at MRCP obtained from thick coronal and coronal oblique slabs. Axial and sagittal images can both show gas bubbles in bile ducts but sagittal images depict more easily the presence of an air-fluid level.
