Wheat (Triticum aestivum)

Wheat Hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) is one of the most important crop plants. Wheat is notorious for its low level of polymorphism with many different marker systems. Microsatellite markers detect sufficient polymorphism for a broad use in molecular marker analyses. TraitGenetics and the Institute for Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) in Gatersleben have developed and mapped more than 1.000 microsatellite markers for the wheat genome. This marker set is the single largest mapped wheat marker set currently available. Several subsets derived from this collection of wheat markers have been selected as an optimized panel in routine genotyping as well as for the identification of wheat varieties and germplasm. Our wheat microsatellite markers are the standard for many breeding companies and research institutions. Linkages of our markers to a number of interesting traits (e.g. scab resistance) have been established and can be used for marker-assisted selection. TraitGenetics is in a unique position to offer marker analysis services within breeding programs, marker assisted selection, backcrossing and research projects.
