- ... Biofortification of bread wheat by the transfer of useful variability of high grain Fe and Zn from Aegilops kotschyi through induced homoeologous pairing is the most feasible approach to alleviate micronutrient malnutrition worldwide. Deficiency of chromosome 5B in interspecific hybrids allows homoeologous pairing and recombination of chromosomes of wheat with those of the related species. The int ...

- ... Leymus mollis (Trin.) Pilger (NsNsXmXm, 2n = 28), a wild relative of common wheat, possesses many potentially valuable traits for wheat breeding, i.e., strong and short stems, long spikes with numerous spikelets, tolerance to drought and cold, and resistance to many fungal and bacterial diseases. In this study, we hybridized a wheat–L. mollis triple substitution line 05DM6 × Triticum aestivum L. c ...
