Cell wall features transferred from common into durum wheat to improve Fusarium Head Blight resistance.

Durum wheat is naturally more susceptible to Fusarium graminerum infection in comparison to common wheat. The improvement of durum wheat resistance against F. graminearum is a challenge due to the lack of resistance sources in its gene pool. FHB-resistance factors were introduced in durum wheat by generating recombinant inbred lines (RILs), obtained by crossing the hexaploid resistant accession 02-5B-318 with the susceptible durum wheat cv. Saragolla. In this work we explored the possible contribution of ce...

Evolutionary divergence of the rye Pm17 and Pm8 resistance genes reveals ancient diversity.

We have isolated a novel powdery mildew resistance gene in wheat that was originally introgressed from rye. Further analysis revealed evolutionary divergent history of wheat and rye orthologous resistance genes. Wheat production is under constant threat from a number of fungal pathogens, among them is wheat powdery mildew (Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici). Deployment of resistance genes is the most economical and sustainable method for mildew control. However, domestication and selective breeding have narr...

Comparative genome-wide mapping versus extreme pool-genotyping and development of diagnostic SNP markers linked to QTL for adult plant resistance to stripe rust in common wheat.

A major stripe rust resistance QTL on chromosome 4BL was localized to a 4.5-Mb interval using comparative QTL mapping methods and validated in 276 wheat genotypes by haplotype analysis. CYMMIT-derived wheat line P10103 was previously identified to have adult plant resistance (APR) to stripe rust in the greenhouse and field. The conventional approach for QTL mapping in common wheat is laborious. Here, we performed QTL detection of APR using a combination of genome-wide scanning and extreme pool-genotyping. S...

Extensive host immune adaptation in a concentrated North American HIV epidemic.

HIV incidence in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, where Indigenous persons make up 80% of those infected, are among the highest on the continent. Reports of accelerated HIV progression, associated with carriage of certain human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles (including the typically protective HLA-B*51) have also emerged from the region. Given that acquisition of HIV preadapted to host HLA negatively impacts clinical outcome, we hypothesized that HIV-host adaptation may be elevated in Saskatchewan.

Predictors of Persistent Wheat Allergy in Children: A Retrospective Cohort Study.

We aimed to delineate factors amenable to public health action that may reduce high-cost use among a cohort of MHA clients in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Biolistic Transformation of Wheat.

Biolistic transformation of wheat is one of the most commonly used methods for gene function study and trait discovery. It has been widely adapted as a fundamental platform to generate wheat plants with new traits and has become a powerful tool for facilitating the crop improvement. In this chapter, we present a complete and straightforward protocol for wheat transformation via biolistic bombardment system. Although wheat is still one of the hardest plant species to transform, this protocol offers an optim...

From Ancient to Old and Modern Durum Wheat Varieties: Interaction among Cultivar Traits, Management and Technological Quality.

Following the boom in durum wheat breeding, ancient wheat disappeared from the human diet and old durum wheat varieties were replaced by what is believed to be their better versions: higher yielding modern varieties grown in high input systems. Although breeders have worked intensely ever since to improve the quality of durum wheat traits, mainly gluten subunit alleles, in order to obtain a superior technological quality of the main durum wheat end products (first pasta and then bread), conflicts about pred...

Effects of water stress on water use efficiency of irrigated and rainfed wheat in the Loess Plateau, China.

The Loess Plateau, the largest arid and semi-arid zone in China, has been confronted with more severe water resource pressure and a growing demand for food production under global changes. For developing sustainable agriculture in this region, it is critical to learn spatiotemporal variations in water use efficiency (WUE) of main crops (e.g. winter wheat in this region) under various water management practices. In this study, we classified irrigated and rainfed wheat areas based on MODIS data, and calculate...

Exploring the metabolic variation between domesticated and wild tetraploid wheat genotypes in response to corn leaf aphid infestation.

Infestation of Triticum (wheat) plants by their pest Rhopalosiphum maidis (corn leaf aphid) causes severe vegetative damage. Despite the agro-economic importance of wheat, the metabolic diversity of Triticum turgidum (tetraploid wheat) in response to aphid attack has not been sufficiently addressed. In this study, we compared the metabolic diversity of two tetraploid wheat genotypes, domesticated and wild emmer. The plants were grown in a control growth room and infested with aphids for 96 h. Our untargete...
