The Shyri x Galena Barley Mapping Population

Special thanks to the following cooperators:

Genetic resistance is the most cost-effective and environmentally appropriate approach to disease management in crop plants. The Shyri x Galena barley mapping population is a resource for identifying regions of the genome associated with quantitative and qualitative resistance to a range of diseases, including leaf rust, stripe rust, barley yellow dwarf virus, net blotch and scald. Shyri is a two-rowed feed barley developed by ICARDA/CIMMYT and released in Ecuador. Galena is a two-rowed malting barley belonging to the Coors Brewing Company, Inc.

This page provides access to the data and analysis tools used by Toojinda et al. (2000) and to previously unpublished data and analysis of scald and net blotch.
