Advances in Wheat and Pathogen Genomics: Implications for Disease Control


Keller, Beat; Wicker, Thomas; Krattinger, Simon G (2018). Advances in Wheat and Pathogen Genomics: Implications for Disease Control. Annual Review of Phytopathology, 56(1):67-87.

Abstract

The gene pool of wheat and its wild and domesticated relatives contains a plethora of resistance genes that can be exploited to make wheat more resilient to pathogens. Only a few of these genes have been isolated and studied at the molecular level. In recent years, we have seen a shift from classical breeding to genomics-assisted breeding, which makes use of the enormous advancements in DNA sequencing and high-throughput molecular marker technologies for wheat improvement. These genomic advancements have the potential to transform wheat breeding in the near future and to significantly increase the speed and precision at which new cultivars can be bred. This review highlights the genomic improvements that have been made in wheat and its pathogens over the past years and discusses their implications for disease-resistance breeding. Keywords genomics-assisted breeding, genome sequence, gene cloning, pathogenomics, disease resistance gene, pathogenic fungi
