Stagonospora nodorum and Pyrenophora tritici-repentis use specific proteins called effectors to cause disease... The project is focused on understanding how these effector proteins cause disease... As the target audience of this project will eventually be the breeders, the identification of wheat genes and pathways that are responsible for propagating disease in this project will be delivered as identified and verified...

The team at the Adelaide-based Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics (ACPFG) has identified for the first time the genes that govern wheat's response to high soil boron - one of the more complex yield constraints because plants need the element but too much is toxic... Varieties that are well adapted to southern soils most likely contain boron-tolerance genes, which, conversely, make these varieties poor performers in northern soils since the genes may restrict the plant's access to boron, which in these soils is already limited... The discovery, announced in the international science journal Nature , has allowed the development of molecular markers that breeders can now use to select lines with boron tolerance for southern soils and also ensure these genes are not active in northern varieties...

Drought tolerance, visual agronomic traits and yields of these mutants will be evaluated under both stressed and non-stressed conditions... We have discovered that plants lacking a functional copy of the gene called SALI are more drought tolerant... We started investigating the SAL1 gene in the Australian wheat variety Chara...

Yellow spot is estimated to cause crop losses of $140 million annually in Western Australia.. A world-first molecular breakthrough by Western Australian researchers is advancing efforts to breed wheat for resistance to yellow spot (also known as tan spot)... In an attempt to cut losses from yellow spot, the GRDC and Curtin University's Centre for Crop and Disease Management (CCDM) started a national 'Stop the Spot' campaign this year calling for growers to send in suspect wheat crop leaves for disease testing...
