ABSTRACT The endophyte Piriformospora indica colonizes roots of a range of host plants and increases biomass production and resistance to fungal pathogens and, thus has been considered a biocontrol fungus. However, the field performance of this fungus has not yet been tested in temperate climates. Therefore, we evaluated the performance of this fungus in(More)
The present study aimed to localize exotic quantitative trait locus (QTL) alleles for the improvement of leaf rust (P. triticina) resistance in an advanced backcross (AB) population, B22, which is derived from a cross between the winter wheat cultivar Batis (Triticum aestivum) and the synthetic wheat accession Syn022L. The latter was developed from(More)
The range of publicly available data on plant nucleotide sequences opens a new possibility in the design of SNP assays. The purpose of this study was to identify point mutations in genomic sequences closely linked to the Lr1 leaf rust resistance gene, and to develop SNP markers based on primer extension (SNuPE) facilitating efficient marker-based selection(More)
