High-throughput omics approaches for effective breeding selection of durum wheat quality

This project will focus on genetic and genomic approaches to predict quality parameters including protein content, yellow pigment content (YPC) and milling quality in durum which will enable larger scale selections for those traits at earlier generations of breeding programs and ultimately accelerate the breeding programs on improving durum wheat quality.

Field evaluation of one seed treatment inducing multiple agronomic responses from emergence to yield

This project builds on the findings from previous ADF project on the positive effect of recently developed, inexpensive, one-time seed treatment on early seed germination, seedling establishment and enhanced root development in spring. These are the critical factors for increasing yield through advanced flowering and avoidance of heat/drought stress in mid-summer in multiple crops.

Comparing wheat allergenicity in ancient and modern wheats

This project is the first intensive study focused on characterizing the wheat gluten protein complex from a historical set of 37 CWRS wheat varieties, to study changes in glutenin and gliadin subunits over time and to identify specific changes or not both in quantity and quality in Celiac disease (CD) causing epitopes in wheat gluten complex proteins.
