Characterisation of stem rust resistance genes effective against race Ug99 on wheat chromosome 7l

Pujol, Vincent


Wheat is one the most important food crops in the world, grown on more acreage than any other. Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, the causal agent of wheat and barley stem rust, is responsible for major production losses around the world. The development of resistant cultivars is an effective way to manage the disease, but outbreaks can occur when new pathogen races overcome the existing resistances. This happened with Ug99 (TTKSK), a highly virulent race now spreading in Africa and the Middle...[Show more]
