Bread wheat covers almost a fifth of the total calories consumed all over the world. Its massive and hexaploid genome, composed of three subgenomes, 21 chromosomes, and 85% repetitive DNA, hinders wheat genetic improvement toward its full potential. The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium gives hope to wheat farmers as they publish the...
While rice is widely grown and consumed in China, it is not well known that the county is also the world's largest producer of wheat. Today, scientists would like to know the path that wheat took to get to China. Prior research showed that wheat was first domesticated in the Fertile Crescent around 8500 BCE. It then spread west into Europe and east...
South Korea's Ministry of Food and Drug Safety has halted imports of Canadian wheat, stating the country will only sell wheat -More-
(University of Maryland) The University of Maryland as part of the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium published findings in Science detailing the full wheat genome, the world's most widely cultivated crop. A companion paper is available in the same issue with UMD and the John Innes Centre, using this sequence to examine gene expression in wheat, specifically relating to heat, drought...
Although providing ~20% of the daily calories and protein per capita worldwide, wheat is relatively an outcast from the posse of biotech crops. Scientists address this "abandonment" issue in a perspective article in Science.The authors presented a promising shorter time for wheat improvement via genetic engineering than traditional crossbreeding an...
(Kansas State University) Kansas State University scientists, in collaboration with the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium, published today in the international journal Science a detailed description of the complete genome of bread wheat, the world's most widely cultivated crop.
A new study conducted by a research team from John Innes Centre (JIC) has isolated a gene that controls the shape and size of wheat spikelets. The study focused on the genetics behind a specific mutant trait in bread wheat known as paired spikelets, where a wheat inflorescence is formed of two spikelets instead of the usual one. This trait, which b...
Fusarium head blight is a devastating fungal disease that affects wheat and barley crops worldwide. The American Phytopathological Society reports that the disease has cost U.S. wheat and barley farmers more than $3 billion since 1990. Scientists from the U.S. Department of Agriculture - Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), together with land ...
Kansas State University received funding from the Kansas Wheat Commission to advance development of biotech wheat. -More-
(Rothamsted Research) Substantial reductions in a deadly root disease of wheat crops and corresponding increases in yields of grain and straw mark a significant advance in the continuing war to protect the staple cereal from the ravages of the take-all soil pathogen. Researchers have now shown that careful selection of the variety of the first wheat in a new cropping cycle can reduce the disease's...
Identification and manipulation of male fertility genes in hexaploid bread wheat is important for understanding pollen development and to gain novel sources of nuclear genetic male sterility (NGMS). The maize Male sterile 45 (Ms45) gene has been shown to be required for male fertility. To investigate the role of Ms45 gene in wheat, the team of Manj...
(RUDN University) RUDN and the Italian Euromediterranean Center for Climate Change (CMCC) scientists studied how climate changes may affect wheat harvest in high latitudes of the Eastern hemisphere on the example of Russia. In the upcoming decades the most yielding agricultural areas in the south of the country will be hit by droughts. The optimal territory for wheat and other grain crops cultivat...
Century Snacks of Commerce, CA, is recalling certain 16 OZ. bags of Tropical Trail Mix because they may contain milk, soy, wheat and cashew allergens and this is not declared on the package. Individuals who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, soy, wheat or cashews run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products
(University of Sydney) Researchers have isolated the first major resistance genes against the stripe rust disease that is devastating wheat crops worldwide. The breakthrough by the scientists, who have cloned three related rust resistance genes -- called Yr7, Yr5, and YrSP -- will enable these important genes to be accurately monitored and integrated into breeding programs in the fight against eve...
South Korea has resumed imports of Canadian wheat after eight days of trade suspension due to concerns regarding biotech plan -More-

(University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences) With feed costs and the worldwide demand for meat growing, livestock producers are increasingly turning to co-products from the ethanol and human food industries. Research from the University of Illinois is helping to determine the feed value of wheat middlings and red dog, two co-products of the wheat milling pr...
First chromosome-scale wheat genome assembly produced by IWGSC is available in Ensembl.
Toronto - July 19, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) FSD Pharma Inc. ("FSD Pharma") (CSE:HUGE) (OTC:FSDDF) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, FV Pharma Inc.

Piggie Park Enterprises Inc. is recalling Maurice’s Southern Gold BBQ Sauce Honey manufactured in the past two years (March 11, 2016 thru March 11, 2018), because it contains undeclared wheat and soy. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat or soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
NewsNew research suggests that researchers may be able to use blue-green algae to boost crop yield in plants like wheat, cowpeas and cassava.Contributed
Chinese researchers have completed sequencing the genome of the wheat A subgenome, and generated a high-quality draft of its chromosomes. The researchers generated a molecular map of seven chromosomes of the wheat A subgenome and identified 41,507 protein-coding genes, providing high-quality genomic information and a new perspective for studying ge...
(American Society of Agronomy) Unlike humans, crops in a field can't move to air conditioning to endure a heat wave. Scientists in Australia are working to understand how heat waves impact wheat.
H&C Food Inc of Brooklyn, NY is recalling the Frozen Fuzhou Fish Balls and the Fish Balls, because they may contain undeclared wheat, pork, egg, and crustacean. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat, pork, egg and crustacean run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
