Q.; Guo, L. B.; Paterson, A. H.; Li, Z. K. // Theoretical & Applied Genetics;Jun2003, Vol. 107 Issue 1, p89 

    To understand the types of gene action controlling seven quantitative traits in rice, QTL mapping was performed to dissect the main effect (M-QTLs) and digenic epistatic (E-QTLs) QTLs responsible for the trait performance of 254 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of "Lemont/Teqing", and two...

    This work reports the molecular characterisation of new alleles of the previously reported Glu-R1 locus. Wheat lines carrying the chromosome substitution 1R(1D), rye cultivars and related wild species were analysed. Five new x-type and four y-type Glu-R1 glutenin subunits were isolated and...

    The rice (Oryza sativa L.) mutant of glu4a, lacking the glutelin α-2 subunit while the α-1 subunit increased (α-1H/α-2L), was used in this study. Two-dimensional electrophoresis analysis revealed that the mutant lacked the polypeptide pI6.71/α-2 encoded by glu4 while forming a new...

  • UC Davis takes leadership in $5 million wheat research.  // Western Farm Press;3/4/2006, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p27 

    The article reports on the research grant awarded to a consortium of public wheat breeders and scientists led by the University of California, Davis to advance technology that will identify genes that may produce higher quality and disease-resistant wheat. It further reports that they will use...

  • Identification of candidate genes for grain number in rice ( Oryza sativa L.). Deshmukh, Rupesh; Singh, Abhinay; Jain, Neha; Anand, Shweta; Gacche, Raju; Singh, Ashok; Gaikwad, Kishor; Sharma, Tilak; Mohapatra, Trilochan; Singh, Nagendra // Functional & Integrative Genomics;Aug2010, Vol. 10 Issue 3, p339 

    Large number of well-filled grains per panicle is an important yield component trait in rice. A combination of QTL mapping and transcriptome profiling was used to identify candidate genes for grain number. A framework linkage map was constructed using 166 SSR markers evenly distributed over the...

  • Marketing in the comfort zone.  // Farmers Weekly;9/7/2007, Vol. 147 Issue 10, p21 

    The article looks at grain marketing in Great Britain as of September 2007. It states that crop production will increase in the region and in abroad and it can be attained through improved plant breeding and land cultivation. It emphasizes the need to study and address the issue of genetic...

  • DROUGHT = AG BUBBLE? BROCK, RICHARD // Corn & Soybean Digest;Aug2012, Vol. 72 Issue 6, p52 

    In this article the author examines whether the agricultural economy is making a bubble and that grain prices will drop. He assesses the impact of the current drought in the U.S. on corn and soybean prices. He also mentions the positive side for corn and soybean prices such as tight supplies and...

    The coding regions of 28 entries of hexaploid wheat γ-gliadin genes, gene fragments or pseudogenes in GenBank were used for nucleotide alignment. These sequences could be divided into nine subgroups based on nucleotide variation. The chromosomal locations of five of the seven unassigned...

  • Identifications of two different mechanisms for sorghum midge resistance through QTL mapping. Tao, Y. Z.; Hardy, A.; Drenth, J.; Henzell, R. G.; Franzmann, B. A.; Jordan, D. R.; Butler, D. G.; McIntyre, C. L. // Theoretical & Applied Genetics;Jun2003, Vol. 107 Issue 1, p116 

    Sorghum midge is the one of the most damaging insect pests of grain sorghum production worldwide. At least three different mechanisms are involved in midge resistance. The genetic bases of these mechanisms, however, are poorly understood. In this study, for the first time, quantitative trait...
