SESSION ONE-Review of progress

10:15

Current status of genome mapping in the Triticeae
(Types of Triticeae maps, types of markers used)

Gary Hart
Texas A&M Univ, USA

10:45

Practical impact of the Triticeae genome maps
(Review of extent of mapping of major categories of genes:
disease resistance, stress, QTLs, major genes, etc. in all genomes)

Peter Langridge
Univ of Adelaide
AUSTRALIA

SESSION TWO-Synthesis

11:15

Patterns of crossing-over and recombination in Triticeae genomes
(Review of current understanding of the distribution of cross-overs across
chromosomes and potential causes, i.e., distance from the centromere,
telomere, interference, effects of heterochromatin, NORs, etc.)

Adam Lukaszewski
Univ of California
Riverside, USA

11:50

LUNCH BREAK

 

1:15

Maintenance of structure of the genome during the evolution of Triticeae
(Evidence for genome conservation and divergence among Triticeae
genomes)

Katrien Devos
John Innes Centre
UNITED KINGDOM

1:50

Organization of cereal chromosomes as based on evidence from genetic and deletion maps
(Discussing gene distribution and its significance for gene cloning
prospects and its impact on linkage and deletion maps)

Bikram Gill
Kansas State Univ
Kansas, USA

2:25

Impact of recombination on genetic variation
(Evidence for the relationship between genetic variation and recombination
across chromosomes in inbreeding and outbreeding and the relationship
among mating systems, recombination, and species of
Aegilops
and
Triticum global amount of genetic variability in species)

Jan Dvorak
Univ of California
Davis, USA
