  • 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.
