  • Thesis Presentation on Molecular Mapping and Genetic Characterisation of Rust Resistance in Wheat

    mamtaThis Friday on 27/11/2015 at 10 am at the RDC Yusipang Conference Hall there will be a Thesis Presentation by Mamta Chhetri on Molecular Mapping and Genetic Characterisation of Rust Resistance in Wheat.

    Abstract: The first aspect of this investigation covers QTL analysis of triple rust resistance segregating among W195/BT-Schomburgk Selection (BTSS) recombinant inbred line (RIL) population. Three QTL each for stripe rust (QYr.sun-3BS; QYr.sun-4DL; QYr.sun-7AS), leaf rust (QLr.sun-2BS; QLr.sun-3BS; QLr.sun-4DL) and stem rust (QSr.sun-2BL; QSr.sun-4DL; QSr.sun-6AS) resistance were identified. QYr.sun-3BS, QYr.sun-4DL, QLr.sun-4DL and QSr.sun-4DL were contributed by W195, whereas other QTL were contributed by the alternate parent BTSS.

  • SFED trains foresters on Forest monitoring through GIS and Remote Sensing

    SFED trg16-20 Nov. 2015, Thimphu: Some 15 foresters from Dzongkhag Forestry Sectors and Territorial Divisions are currently getting trained on using Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) to monitor the forests at Hotel RochogPel in Thimphu.

    With use of GIS and RS, foresters will be able to monitor forest dynamics real times in terms of forest cover to woody biomass. The technology can also enable foresters to monitor forest boundary, forest strata, canopy density, forest fires, forest degradations, illegal activities, encroachment, illegal mining and several other aspects.
