Synthetic hexaploid wheats (SHWs) and synthetic backcross-derived lines (SBLs) obtained from them are novel sources of useful traits for broadening the diversity in breeding germplasm of hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum). Fifty-one EST-derived and 39 genomic-derived microsatellite markers (SSRs) covering the A, B, and D genomes were used to assess the genetic diversity present in 11 SHWs, their backcross derived families, and their durum and bread wheat parents and to test for the… CONTINUE READING
