The common wheat line, YW243, developed in our research group, was tested for the resistances of barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV), powdery mildew (Pm) and stripe rust in field, and was analyzed by molecular markers for convenient trace of the resistant genes in breeding. Genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) analysis and sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) assay further demonstrated that YW243 was a homozygous multiple translocation line of
Triticum aestivum, Thinopyrum intermedium
(T7DS·7DL-7XL & 1BL·1RS). The disease resistance test and marker analysis showed that YW243 carried seven resistance genes to the three diseases, including
to BYDV on 7DL-7XL,
to powdery mildew on 2AL,
Yr2, Yr9, Sr 31
and a new
to stripe rust on 7B, 1BL, 1RS and 2BL. Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) markers
, sequence tagged site (STS) marker STS
, simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers
, SSR markers
can be used as diagnostic tools to track
Bdv2, Pm4, Yr2, Yr9
, respectively; and two amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers
can also be used to select

Mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTL) was carried out in a set of 114 RILs of the International Triticeae Mapping Initiative (ITMI) mapping population under salt stress. Seedling population was grown during 8 days, under salt treatment (Hoagland’s ½ strength + 110 mM NaCl, EC 12.4 mS/cm) and normal treatment (Hoagland’s ½ strength, EC 0.9 mS/cm). We calculated starch degradation, measuring the dry weight of the grains on the 4th, 6th and 8th days of culturing. Formation of biomass was calculated measuring leaf and root length on the 4th, 6th and 8th days of culture. Interval mapping resulted in 13 QTLs, 2 major QTLs (LOD> 3) and 11 minors QTLs (LOD> 2). A total of 10 QTLs were associated with saline treatment and 3 QTLs at normal treatment. The data show that a high percentage of QTLs were in chromosomes 2B (3, 23.0%), and 1A (3, 23.0%), followed by 4D (2, 13.6%).

Plum pox virus
, PPV), is one of the most serious viral diseases affecting apricot production in those areas that are affected. The development and cultivation of new resistant cultivars could be the definitive solution to the disease. In this process of development and introduction of new resistant cultivars, the availability of a reliable method is of great interest for the evaluation of resistance. The development of molecular (genomic or proteomic) markers linkage to this trait could greatly accelerate this evaluation process in apricot. In this work, a double strategy for the development of molecular markers linkage to PPV resistance in apricot is presented: search for genomic (DNA) markers and study the protein expression through 2D electrophoresis (proteomic markers). The search of DNA markers linkage to the resistance is focused on the application of SSR (simple sequence repeat) markers located in the linkage group I, in which PPV resistance has been located by different authors. On the other hand, studies of activity of antioxidant enzymes and protein expression by 2D electrophoresis have been performed in resistant and susceptible apricot cultivars.

In this study we evaluate the genetic diversity of a selection of wheat accessions characteristically grown and adapted to mid-European environments, using various molecular marker systems. Thirty-three simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were used alongside genic markers for known dwarfing genes, flowering time genes, and grain hardness genes, namely Rht-B1, Rht-D1, Ppd-D1, Vrn-A1, Vrn-B1, Vrn-D1 and Pinb-D1. In addition, variation was scored for the high-molecular-weight glutenin storage proteins, responsible for dough technological quality. A dendrogram was constructed using the UPGMA algorithm, based on the molecular data and the country of origin, giving an overview of their genetic similarity and relationships. The potential for the use of some agronomic traits in breeding, by providing a basis for multi-trait genetic selection in wheat breeding programs is discussed. Estimating the breeding values of crops using multiple genetic markers might help in breeding for varieties with good technological quality for growing under desired climatic conditions.
