Synthetic wheat lines (2n = 6x = 42, AABBDD), which are amphiploids developed from the hybrid between tetraploid wheat (Triticum turgidum L., 2n = 4x = 28, AABB) and Aegilops tauschii Coss. (2n = 2x = 14, DD), are important sources of resistance against tan spot of wheat caused by Pyrenophora tritici-repentis. In the present study, inheritance, allelism and(More)
The winter wheat cultivar Red Chief has been identified as the wheat cultivar most resistant toPyrenophora tritici-repentis (Ptr). This study was undertaken to determine the inheritance, chromosomal location and molecular mapping of a tan spot resistance gene in Red Chief. χ2 analysis of the F2 segregation data of the hybrids between 21 monosomic lines of(More)
Fifty grass pea land race populations of Ethiopia that were selected based on administrative regions and different altitude classes were used in this study to determine variability in morphological characters, Oxalyl Diamino Propanoic acid(ODAP) – a causative agent of lathyrism, and protein contents and their associations. Highly significant differences(More)
The main goal of this study was to investigate the genetic basis of yield and grain quality traits in winter wheat genotypes using association mapping approach, and identify linked molecular markers for marker assisted selection. A total of 120 elite facultative/winter wheat genotypes were evaluated for yield, quality and other agronomic traits under(More)
In this study, 118 common wheat (Triticum aestivum, 2n = 2× = 42, AABBDD) and durum wheat (Triticum durum, 2n = 4× = 28, AABB) genotypes of Ethiopian origin were evaluated for reaction to tan spot using two Pyrenophora tritici-repentis (Ptr) isolates. Among the commercial Ethiopian bread wheat cultivars HAR604, HAR2562, and Dashen were resistant to both the(More)
Identified DArT and SNP markers including a first reported QTL on 3AS, validated large effect APR on 3BS. The different genes can be used to incorporate stripe resistance in cultivated varieties. Stripe rust [yellow rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst)] is a serious disease in wheat (Triticum aestivum). This study employed genome-wide(More)
Fifty grass pea (Lathyrus sativus L.) populations collected from different administrative regions and altitude classes in Ethiopia, were evaluated for variations of five morphological traits. Shannon-Weaver diversity index was calculated for traits, populations and altitude classes. Monomorphism was recorded in flower color (blue) for most of the(More)
Fifty-five mungbean lines were evaluated for days to maturity and grain yield per plant. This material showed considerable range of variability for the target traits. Eight genetically diverse parents were selected and used for a full diallel set of crosses to study the mode of inheritance for earliness related parameters (days to flowering, days to(More)
Genetic resistance is the most effective, economical and environment friendly method of managing tan spot of wheat caused by the ascomycete Pyrenophora tritici-repentis (Died.) Drechs. (anamorph Drechslera tritici-repentis, Died.). This study was carried out to determine the association between seedling and adult plant resistance in winter wheat cultivars,(More)
The HfrDrd gene has been reported to be induced specifically in the wheat’s defence response to Hessian fly larvae and is not a general stress-responsive gene. The gene is located on chromosome 7DS with a homeologue on 7AS. In this study, two SNPs in the gene that result in amino acid substitutions in the dirigent-like protein have been identified. Both are(More)
