    • Phenotyping and QTL mapping for cold tolerance at the germination and seedling stages in Argentine temperate rice 

      Bonell, Martha Lucrecia; Arguissain, Gustavo Gabriel; Crepy, Maria Andrea; Fernandez, Paula Del Carmen; Heinz, Ruth Amelia (Springer, 2020-07)
      In Argentina, the yield potential of rice (Oryza sativa L.) under suboptimal temperatures of temperate regions and during early sowing in tropical regions depends on its low-temperature germinability (LTG) and subsequent ...
    • QTL analysis of main and epistatic effects for flour color traits in durum wheat 

      Roncallo, Pablo F.; Cervigni, Gerardo Domingo Lucio; Jensen, Carlos Alberto; Miranda, Rubén; Carrera, Alicia Delia; Helguera, Marcelo; Echenique, Carmen Viviana (2012-05)
      The aim of this work was to map quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with flour yellow color (Fb*) and yellow pigment content (YPC) in durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var. durum). Additionally, QTLs affecting flour ...
    • Quantitative genetics and genomics converge to accelerate forest tree breeding 

      Grattapaglia, Dario; Silva Junior, Orzenil B.; Resende, Rafael T.; Cappa, Eduardo Pablo; Müller, Bárbara S. F.; Tan, Biyue; Isik, Fikret; Ratcliffe, Blaise; El-Kassaby, Yousry A. (2018-11)
      Forest tree breeding has been successful at delivering genetically improved material for multiple traits based on recurrent cycles of selection, mating, and testing. However, long breeding cycles, late flowering, variable ...
    • Quantitative trait loci affecting reproductive phenology in peach 

      Romeu Santacreu, José Francisco; Monforte Gilabert, Antonio J.; Sanchez, Gerardo; Granell Richart, Antonio; García Brunton, Jesús; Badenes, María Luisa; Ríos García, Gabino (2014-02-22)
      Background: The reproductive phenology of perennial plants in temperate climates is largely conditioned by the duration of bud dormancy, and fruit developmental processes. Bud dormancy release and bud break depends on the ...
    • Quantitative trait loci for Fusarium and Gibberella ear rot resistance in Argentinian maize germplasm 

      Giomi, Gerardo Mario; Iglesias, Juliana; Kreff, Enrique D.; Fauguel, Carolina Maria; Fernández, Mariana; Oviedo, María Silvina; Presello, Daniel Alberto (2016)
      Fusarium verticillioides and F. graminearum cause ear rots in maize (Zea mays L.) that reduce yield and contaminate the grain with mycotoxins produced by the fungi. To map QTLs for resistance to these ear rots, a F5 mapping ...
    • Seed dormancy QTL identification across a Sorghum bicolor segregating population 

      Cantoro, Renata; Fernandez, Luis German; Cervigni, Gerardo Domingo Lucio; Rodriguez, María V.; Gieco, Jorge Omar; Paniego, Norma Beatriz; Heinz, Ruth Amelia; Benech-Arnold, Roberto Luis (2016)
      Pre-harvest sprouting (PHS) in Sorghum bicolor is one of the main constrains for its production in the central region of Argentina, as grain maturation often coincides with rainy or high environmental humidity conditions. ...
    • Studying growth and vigor as quantitative traits in grapevine populations 

      Hugalde, Ines Pilar; Riaz, Summaira; Agüero, Cecilia B.; Vila, Hernan Felix; Gomez Talquenca, Gonzalo; Walker, M. Andrew (IntechOpen, 2019-03)
      Vigor is considered as a propensity to assimilate, store, and/or use nonstructural carbohydrates for producing large canopies, and it is associated with high metabolism and fast growth. Growth involves cell expansion and ...
    • The peach volatilome modularity is reflected at the genetic and environmental response levels in a QTL mapping population 

      Sanchez, Gerardo; Martinez, José; Romeu Santacreu, José Francisco; García Brunton, Jesús; Monforte Gilabert, Antonio J.; Badenes, María Luisa; Granell Richart, Antonio (2014-05-19)
      Background: The improvement of fruit aroma is currently one of the most sought-after objectives in peach breeding programs. To better characterize and assess the genetic potential for increasing aroma quality by breeding, ...
