Genomic selection is a promising tool to select for spot blotch resistance and index-based selection to select for spot blotch resistance, heading and plant height.
Researchers use genome-wide association mapping approach to identify new regions with resistance to the disease.
Over millennia, natural selection and humans have systematically adapted the plant species that provide food and other vital products, changing their physical and genetic makeup for enhanced productivity, nutrition and resilience. Plant breeders apply science to continue improving crop varieties, making them more productive and better adapted to climate extremes, insects, drought and diseases.
Researchers evaluate the use of genomic selection in wheat breeding against deadly fungal disease.
Review proposes ways to accelerate climate resilience of staple crops, by integrating proven breeding methods with cutting-edge technologies.
Study validates importance and uncovers new benefits of crucial wheat genome segment.
CIMMYT contributes to sequencing genomes of 15 wheat varieties around the world.
Scientists in the Accelerating Genetic Gains in Maize and Wheat for Improved Livelihoods (AGG) project share history and latest results at annual wheat research gathering.
Genomic-wide association study evaluated samples from Bolivia and Bangladesh for blast-resistant genes.
A new quantitative genetics study makes a strong case for the yield testing strategies CIMMYT uses in its wheat breeding program.
