Vernalization genes VRN1 play a major role in the transition from vegetative to reproductive growth in wheat. In di-, tetra- and hexaploid wheats the presence of a dominant allele of at least one VRN1 gene homologue (Vrn-A1, Vrn-B1, Vrn-G1 or Vrn-D1) determines the spring growth habit. Allelic variation between the Vrn-1 and vrn-1 alleles relies on(More)
Q gene is the major domestication gene of wheat and many questions concerning Q gene genetics, including Q gene variability and its functional influence on phenotype, remain unanswered for the majority of wheat species. Here we crossed wheat species with dominant (Q) and recessive (q) alleles and confirmed that Q gene controls threshability, rachis(More)
Nosema bombi is an obligate intracellular parasite of bumblebees (Hymenoptera, Bombus spp.), which has significant negative effect on individual bumblebees, colony fitness, and development. Recently, several new genetic variants of N. bombi without a defined taxonomic status were identified in natural bumblebee populations from Russia, China, and several(More)
