Scientists identify genome regions that lead to better yield, disease resistance in wheat
International team found a way to breed better wheat varieties with high yields and resistance to diseases and the adverse effects of climate change.
Genome editing, gene drives, and synthetic biology: Will they contribute to disease-resistant crops, and who will benefit?
New paper outlines potential uses of genetic engineering technologies to address problems that affect resource-poor farmers and consumers.
Large-scale genomics will improve the yield, climate-resilience, and quality of bread wheat, new study shows
Scientists identified significant new chromosomal regions for wheat yield and disease resistance, which will speed up global breeding efforts.
Why wheat matters
The history of wheat is the history of civilization.
