Transfer of alien chromosome segments from various Triticeae species into cultivated wheats, commonly referred to as "chromosome engineering", is currently benefiting from the recent, impressive advancements in molecular genetics, cytogenetics and genomics, which are providing new insights into the genetic and physical organization of even complex plant genomes, such as those of the Triticeae. The powerful analytical tools presently available are making the assessment of desired genotypes in… CONTINUE READING
