English: Stem rust caused by Puccinia graminis Pers.:Pers. f. sp. tritici Eriks. & E. Henn., is an economically important disease of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) worldwide. The disease has often reached epidemic ...
A comparison of monosomic and disomic substitution lines in the chromosomal location of leaf rust resistance genes in tetraploid wheats
(University of the Free State, 2003-05)
English: Two sets of aneuploids were employed and compared to localize adult plant leaf rust resistance genes in tetraploid wheat accessions. One set was the hexaploid Chinese Spring (CS) A- and B-genome monosomics ...
