Microsatellite mapping of the gene conferring compact spike in Japanese “Gumbai” landraces of common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

The “Gumbai” wheat landraces of are a distinctive group of Japanese common wheat landraces. They originated in the Yamanashi region of Japan and are characterized by compact spikes, which were called “Gumbai” in the Japanese language. It is well known that the spikes of club wheat (Triticum compactum Host, 2n = 6x = 42, BBAADD genome) are governed by the… CONTINUE READING
