The development of the wheat inflorescence, or spike, determines
the number, size and shape of grain produced. Altering spike
development has the potential to increase grain yield to support
increasing global demands. Despite the importance of this
specialized structure, little is known about the genes which
underlie its development and thus contribute to grain output.
Yield potential in wheat can be modified by numerous
developmental outcomes. The number of...[Show more]
