allele

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The VERNALIZATION1 gene ( VRN1 ) regulates flowering and frost tolerance in cereals... The genetic material and markers developed in this project provide useful tools for Australian cereal breeding programs... Using the Japanese isolines will accelerate this project allowing the project team to proceed directly to testing reproductive frost tolerance under controlled (frost chamber in Adelaide) or under field conditions (different frost prone test sites)...

The effects of genes on traits in wheat of commercial importance were estimated using large plant breeding data sets, diagnostic markers and sophisticated statistical methods... The earliest successes occurred with the genes controlling grain quality in wheat, in particular enabling wheat breeders to select against alleles, or variants, of the glutenin and puroindoline genes that had negative effects on dough rheology traits (dough strength and dough extensibility) and on milling yield... It is suspected that Glu-D3 might interact with storage protein activator (SPA) genes the project team has begun typing the same lines used for Glu-D3 with a diagnostic marker developed by French scientists for SPA-B. Wheat breeding collaborators in Australian Grain Technologies (AGT) and LongReach have given this a high priority, because interactions between SPA and glutenin genes might explain why cultivars such as Bolac have higher than expected grain quality, while the reverse occurs for cultivars such as H45 ...
