GENOME-WIDE ASSOCIATION STUDIES OF DROUGHT RESISTANCE AND YIELD POTENTIAL IN WHEAT (Triticum aestivum L.) USING AGRONOMIC AND REMOTELY SENSED TRAITS
Emerging phenotyping methods and increasingly abundant genotyping platforms have become valuable tools for the discovery and introgression of yield-positive and stress-adaptive genes into modern wheat (Triticum aestivum ...
Plant Breeding for Regional Food Systems: Investigating Craft Malt, Disease Resistance and Production Potential of Barley and Dry Beans in Western Washington
Regionally focused plant breeding has the potential to increase the productivity and profitability of dry beans and barley in western Washington, strengthening the local food system. Achieving this will require an ...
Genetics of drought tolerance in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Drought is a major constraint limiting dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) yield worldwide. Some lines express tolerance but the mechanisms are not well understood. We sought to: i) identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) ...
Characterization of glyphosate-resistant mechanism(s) in spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) induced through mutagenesis
Wheat susceptibility to glyphosate, a non-selective herbicide targeting the EPSPS enzyme, encouraged the development of glyphosate-resistant (GR) spring wheat through mutation breeding using ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) ...
