Identification and development of a functional marker of TaGW2 associated with grain weight in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
The OsGW2 gene is involved in rice grain development, influencing grain width and weight. Its ortholog in wheat, TaGW2, was considered as a candidate gene related to grain development. We found thatExpand

Single nucleotide polymorphism tightly linked to a major QTL on chromosome 7A for both kernel length and kernel weight in wheat
Thousand-kernel weight (TKW) is one of the major components of grain yield in wheat (Triticum aestivum). Identifying major quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for TKW and developing effective markers areExpand

Transcript suppression of TaGW2 increased grain width and weight in bread wheat
Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major staple crop in the world. Grain weight is a major factor of grain yield in wheat, and the identification of candidate genes associated with grain weightExpand

A deletion mutation in TaHRC confers Fhb1 resistance to Fusarium head blight in wheat
Fusarium head blight (FHB), which is mainly caused by Fusarium graminearum, is a destructive wheat disease that threatens global wheat production. Fhb1, a quantitative trait locus discovered inExpand

Multiplex restriction amplicon sequencing: a novel next‐generation sequencing‐based marker platform for high‐throughput genotyping
Summary To enable rapid selection of traits in marker‐assisted breeding, markers must be technically simple, low‐cost, high‐throughput and randomly distributed in a genome. We developed such aExpand

Mapping of Quantitative Trait Loci for Leaf Rust Resistance in the Wheat Population Ning7840 × Clark.
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is an important fungal disease of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and causes significant yield losses worldwide. To determine quantitative trait loci (QTLs)Expand

Silencing of the Wheat Protein Phosphatase 2A Catalytic Subunit TaPP2Ac Enhances Host Resistance to the Necrotrophic Pathogen Rhizoctonia cerealis
Eukaryotic type 2A protein phosphatases (protein phosphatase 2A, PP2A) consist of a scaffold subunit A, a regulatory subunit B, and a catalytic subunit C. Little is known about the roles of PP2AcExpand
