Aoun M et al. (2016) Genome-Wide Association Mapping of Leaf Rust Response in a Durum Wheat Worldwide Germplasm Collection The Plant Genome 9.
A durum wheat collection of 496 accessions from the USDA-Agricultural Research Service (ARS) National Small Grain Collection (NSGC) was evaluated for leaf rust resistance. The lines were genotyped using the Illumina iSelect 9K wheat array. Genetic position of the SNP markers was estimated based on the tetraploid wheta consensus map developed from the iSelect 90K wheat array (Maccaferri eta l. 2015). Leaf rust (Lr) gene loci positions are estimated.
