Tibetan barley (Hordeum vulgare L., qingke) is the principal cereal cultivated on the Tibetan Plateau for at least 3,500 years, but its origin and domestication remain unclear. Here, based on deep-coverage whole-genome and published exome-capture resequencing data for a total of 437 accessions, we show that contemporary qingke is derived from eastern domesticated barley and it is introduced to southern Tibet most likely via north Pakistan, India, and Nepal between 4,500 and 3,500 years ago. The… Expand
Origin and adaptation to high altitude of Tibetan semi-wild wheat
TLDR
This study provides confident evidence to support the hypothesis that Tibetan semi-wild wheat is de-domesticated from local landraces, in response to high-altitude extremes. Expand
The transition to a barley-dominant cultivation system in Tibet: First millennium BC archaeobotanical evidence from Bangga
Abstract Historically, agricultural and culinary traditions on the Tibetan Plateau have centered on a specific variety of naked frost-tolerant barley. Single-crop-dominant cultivation systems wereExpand
Characterization of Genetic Diversity and Genome-Wide Association Mapping of Three Agronomic Traits in Qingke Barley (Hordeum Vulgare L.) in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
TLDR
This study used genome-wide association mapping and GWAS with eigenvector decomposition (EigenGWAS) to detect quantitative trait loci (QTL) and selective signatures for HD, PH, and SL in a collection of 308 qingke barley accessions, and revealed that multiple heading-date-related loci bear signatures of selection.

An improved high-quality genome assembly and annotation of Tibetan hulless barley
TLDR
An improved high-quality assembly and annotation of the Tibetan hulless barley genome using more than 67X PacBio long-reads is reported, showing high gene completeness and high collinearity of genome synteny with the previously reported barley genome. Expand
On the diversity and origin of the barley complex agriocrithon inferred by iPBS transposon markers
TLDR
The results strongly support the notion that H. spontaneum accessions are ancestors of the H. agriocrithon subgroup paradoxon and that the Caspian sea region is the likely place of initial cultivation and domestication of the six-rowed barley. Expand
Genetic and epigenetic variations in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) using SSR and MSAP approaches
TLDR
This study has provided valuable information on DNA methylation variation across diverse barley accessions and indicated that epigenetic variations might be another factor contributing to barley diversity. Expand
Genetics and Genomics of African Rice (Oryza glaberrima Steud) Domestication
TLDR
Comparative analysis of domestication genes between African and Asian rice has revealed that the two species went through an independent but convergent evolution process, and the genetic and developmental basis of some of the domestic traits are conserved not only between Asian and African rice but also with other domesticated crop species.

The complete chloroplast genomes of seventeen Aegilops tauschii: genome comparative analysis and phylogenetic inference
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships determined based on the complete genome sequences were consistent with the hypothesis that Ae. Expand

Abstract Starch content is an important trait in barley. To evaluate the genetic diversity and identify molecular markers of starch content in barley, 40 cultivated barley genotypes collected fromExpand
Identification of QTL for resistance against two fungal pathogens, Pyrenophora teres f. teres and Bipolaris sorokiniana, in a barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) diversity set
TLDR
A diverse barley set comprising 449 accessions originating from over 50 different regions all over the world, expressing different levels of resistance against both pathogens, was screened and it was possible to identify accessions with enhanced resistance against Ptt and Bs. Expand

Tibet as a Potential Domestication Center of Cultivated Barley of China
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis showed a close relationship between Chinese domesticated barley and the Tibetan wild barley, suggesting that Tibet wild barley was the ancestor of Chinese domestication barley, and favor the polyphyletic origin for cultivated barley. Expand
On the origin and domestication history of Barley (Hordeum vulgare).
TLDR
The results provided support for the hypothesis that the Israel-Jordan area is the region in which barley was brought into culture and the Himalayas can be considered a region of domesticated barley diversification. Expand
Tibet is one of the centers of domestication of cultivated barley
TLDR
The results confirmed the existence of Tibetan wild barley and suggested that the split between the wild barleys in the Near East and those in Tibet occurred around 2.76 million years ago, and indicated that the Tibetan Plateau and its vicinity is one of the centers of domestication of cultivated barley. Expand
Assembly and analysis of a qingke reference genome demonstrate its close genetic relation to modern cultivated barley
TLDR
It is proposed that qingke could provide elite genes for barley improvement because of the close genetic relationship between a hulled barley and a hulless barley and the Zangqing320 genome, which is strongly supported by the low‐diversity regions in the two genomes. Expand
Transcriptome profiling reveals mosaic genomic origins of modern cultivated barley
TLDR
The domestication of barley may have occurred over time in geographically distinct regions, and it is suggested that the genomic origin of modern cultivated barley is derived from wild-barley genotypes in the Fertile Crescent and Tibet. Expand
Genetic diversity in Hordeum agriocrithon E. Åberg, six-rowed barley with brittle rachis, from Tibet

TLDR
On the origin of H. agriocrithon, it might be concluded that natural hybridization between H. spontaneum and six-rowed barley occurred in northern parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan or India, and seeds of their segregants mixed into barley or wheat were brought up to Tibet, resulting six- rowed barley with brittle rachis. Expand
Resequencing data indicate a modest effect of domestication on diversity in barley: a cultigen with multiple origins.
TLDR
A comparison of nucleotide sequence diversity in wild and cultivated barley is reported, using sequence from Hordeum bulbosum to infer the ancestral state of mutations and suggests "Oriental" landraces have slightly higher diversity than "Occidental" land races. Expand
Early evidence for the use of wheat and barley as staple crops on the margins of the Tibetan Plateau
TLDR
Using thermal niche modeling, it is demonstrated that the ability of these crops to tolerate frost and their low growing degree-day requirements facilitated their spread into the high-altitude margins of western China. Expand
Domestication history and geographical adaptation inferred from a SNP map of African rice
TLDR
A map of 2.32 million SNPs of African rice from whole-genome resequencing of 93 landraces shows a population bottleneck in this species, suggesting a protracted period of population size reduction likely commencing with predomestication management and/or cultivation. Expand
Elucidation of the origin of ‘agriocrithon’ based on domestication genes questions the hypothesis that Tibet is one of the centers of barley domestication
TLDR
Eu-agriocrithon represents six-rowed barley lineages that were selected by early farmers, once in south-eastern Turkmenistan and again in the eastern part of Uzbekistan, revealing the evolutionary history of these allelic variants. Expand
