2020 Germplasm

Sr60 introgression. PI 689563. The Sr60-resistant haplotype found in T. monococcum is not present in polyploid wheat. We introgressed Sr60 into hexaploid wheat using marker assisted selection and developed a diagnostic molecular marker to accelerate its deployment and pyramiding with other resistance genes.

Glu-B1x mutant: PI 692251, Glu-B1y mutant:  PI 692253 and Glu-B1x Glu-B1y double mutant: PI 692252. Individual loss-of-function mutants of Glu-B1x (∆Bx6) and Glu-B1y (∆By8) were associated with significant reductions in gluten strength compared to the wildtype, with stronger effects in the ∆Bxy double mutant.

2020 Populations

  1. Two previously reported DHL mapping populations (UI Platinum x SY Capstone and UI Platinum x LCS Star) generated under support of WheatCAP were deposited in NSGC in the spring of 2020. 
  2. University of Idaho developed two EMS populations, one from UI Brundage and another from UI Platinum. The two EMS populations will be used in the functional analysis for the identified QTLs.
  3. A spring wheat NAM population, consisting of 852 RILs from 10 stem rust resistant sources, all crossed with susceptible line LMPG-6, were deposited in the NSGC and published in the Journal of Plant Registrations.  The 10 stem rust resistance sources, all with adult plant resistance, consist of 9 Kenyan cultivars and one Minnesota cultivar
  4. Wheat D-Genome Nested Association Mapping (NAM) population registered in 2020 and published in the Journal of Plant Registrations by Eric Olson (Michigan State University).
