Genetic Dissection of the Seminal Root System Architecture in Mediterranean Durum Wheat Landraces by Genome-Wide Association Study
Roots are crucial for adaptation to drought stress. However, phenotyping root systems is a difficult and time-consuming task due to the special feature of the traits in the process of being analyzed. Correlations between ...
From landraces to improved cultivars: Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure of Mediterranean wheat using SNP markers
(Plos One, 2019-07-15)
Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure in crops is essential for breeding and germplasm conservation. A collection of 354 bread wheat genotypes, including Mediterranean landraces and modern cultivars ...
Discovering consensus genomic regions in wheat for root-related traits by QTL meta-analysis
(Scientific Reports, 2019-07-22)
Root system architecture is crucial for wheat adaptation to drought stress, but phenotyping for root traits in breeding programmes is difficult and time-consuming owing to the belowground characteristics of the system. ...
Durum wheat in the Mediterranean Rim: historical evolution and genetic resources
(Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution, 2020-03-11)
Durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. subsp. durum (Desf.) van Slageren) is an important crop in the Mediterranean Rim, and it is deeply rooted in the history and tradition of this region. Recently, several studies that examined ...
