Catalogue: GRDC 2014 Research Summaries
The introduction and maturation of next-generation sequencing technology provides an excellent opportunity to develop genome-wide molecular markers and genomic breeding tools for breeding next generation of barley varieties with improvement of productivity, adaptation and better marketability... The project will decode about 800 million genetic letters of barley chromosome 7H in about 8000 clones using next generation sequencing technology... The success of the project will enable breeders and pre-breeders to access the genomic sequence to dissect the genes on chromosome 7H for yield, adaptation, quality, biotic and abiotic stress tolerance and to develop diagnostic molecular markers and genomic breeding tools...

The project has succeeded in its objective of producing new stem and leaf rust resistant lines containing chromosome segments from alien species and making them available for protection of wheat crops in Australia... Recombinant lines carrying shortened alien chromosomes with Sr32, Sr2S#1 and Sr39 produced in earlier GRDC projects have been confirmed and made available to wheat breeders around Australia since 2004... , advanced backcrossed lines carrying stem rust resistance derived from three different Triticum speltoides accessions or amphiploids and two sources of leaf rust resistance from T. searsii and T. tripsacoides have been produced...

With the appearance and spread of mutants of the Ug99 lineage originating in Africa, most of the stem rust resistance genes used in Australian wheats are now vulnerable to stem rust... Progeny tests showed that six plants were Lr resistant and two plants were susceptible... Stocks with several hundred critical seeds carrying the 6Ae chromosome in a ph1bph1b genotype have been produced...

The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) has announced it has produced a genome assembly for bread wheat... If you imagine the wheat genome as a book, the assembly is the first draft... The second draft is akin to breaking a single block of text into chapters - the individual chromosomes...
