Analysis of anther transcriptomes to identify genes contributing to meiosis and male gametophyte development in rice
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of rice anther transcriptomes at four distinct stages, focusing on identifying regulatory components that contribute to male meiosis and germline development, and identified genes that express exclusively in these stages.
Pyramiding QTL increases seedling resistance to crown rot (Fusarium pseudograminearum) of wheat (Triticum aestivum)
TLDR
This work reports on work that has assessed the effectiveness of pyramiding QTL to improve resistance to crown rot in wheat and identifies three lines that represent a new level of seedling crown rot resistance in wheat.
Identification of novel QTL for resistance to crown rot in the doubled haploid wheat population 'W21MMT70' x 'Mendos'
TLDR
Three quantitative trait loci are different from those associated with crown rot resistance in other wheat populations that have been examined, and may represent an opportunity for pyramiding QTL to provide more durable resistance to crown rot.
High Throughput Determination of Plant Height, Ground Cover, and Above-Ground Biomass in Wheat with LiDAR
TLDR
Application of this system will provide new opportunities to deliver improved genotypes and agronomic interventions via more efficient and reliable phenotyping of these important traits in large experiments through rapid multi-temporal and non-destructive estimation of canopy height, ground cover and above-ground biomass.
Methodology for High-Throughput Field Phenotyping of Canopy Temperature Using Airborne Thermography
TLDR
A reliable and scalable crop phenotyping method that involves airborne thermography from a manned helicopter using a radiometrically-calibrated thermal camera for assessing CT in large field experiments and indicates the potential to phenotype CT on large populations in genetics studies or for selection within a plant breeding program.
Markers for seedling and adult plant crown rot resistance in four partially resistant bread wheat sources
TLDR
Flanking markers, most of which are less than 10 cM apart, have now been identified for each of the regions associated with crown rot resistance.
Can citrate efflux from roots improve phosphorus uptake by plants? Testing the hypothesis with near-isogenic lines of wheat.
TLDR
Theoretical modeling indicates that the effectiveness of citrate efflux in mobilizing soil P is greater as the volume of soil into which it diffuses increases, and it is concluded that Carazinho has other attributes that contribute to its comparatively good performance in low-P soils.
High-throughput phenotyping technologies allow accurate selection of stay-green
TLDR
Multi-temporal, Normalised Difference Vegetative Index (NDVI) measurements with crop simulation modelling are used to demonstrate the value of various stay-green phenotype parameters for improving grain yield across different environment types.
Genetic approaches to enhancing phosphorus-use efficiency (PUE) in crops: challenges and directions
TLDR
Stronger interaction between molecular science and the traditional disciplines of plant breeding, crop physiology, soil science, and agronomy will allow new opportunities to study genetic differences in PUE, bringing P-efficient crops closer to reality.
Development of molecular markers for crown rot resistance in wheat: mapping of QTLs for seedling resistance in a '2-49' x 'Janz' population
TLDR
Phenotypic data indicated that the trait is quantitatively inherited and the combined effect of the QTLs explained 40.6% of the phenotypic variance.
