Mapping and restructuring of an Ae. kotschyi derived translocation segment in common wheat
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The wild relatives are an important source of new genes for the genetic improvement of wheat. At Stellenbosch University the leaf and stripe rust resistance genes Lr54 and Yr37 were transferred from ...
Tagging and mapping of prominent structural genes on chromosome arm 7DL of common wheat
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Chromosome arm 7DL of common wheat carries genes for agronomically important traits such as leaf rust, stem rust, Russian wheat aphid and eye spot resistance. Some of these genes occur on introgressed ...
Mapping genes for stem rust and Russian wheat aphid resistance in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum)
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1997-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Stem rust is considered the most damaging of the wheat rusts causing yield losses of more than 50% in epidemic years. Similarly, Russian wheat aphids (RWA) can be regarded as one ofthe most devastating ...
