new slow rusting gene

Categorised under:

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Studies within the project have shown that some of the newly identified slow rusting genes have pleiotropic effects on multiple diseases... In the first phase of this project, this partnership led to the cloning of the first adult plant resistance gene, Lr34/Yr18/Pm38 and the development of a gene-based molecular marker that is routinely being used by many breeding programs worldwide... In 2012, Australian wheat, durum and triticale varieties were also evaluated for stripe rust, as well as for leaf rust in Mexico with prevalent races that constitute an important threat to wheat production if introduced to Australia...
