We describe the 10.45 gigabase (Gb) assembly of the genome of durum wheat cultivar Svevo. The relative levels of miR172 and Q define spikelet morphology, with higher Q or lower miR172 activity being associated with glume-to-floret transition and free-threshing character, and lower Q activity with the opposite changes. Through analysis of Q’ and induced revertants, the authors show that higher levels of AP2 activity are associated with the formation of ectopic florets in place of glumes – an apparent homeotic transformation in the spike. Landw Jahrbuch 92:241–252, Blake NK, Lehfeldt BR, Lavin M, Talbert LE (1999) Phylogenetic reconstruction based on low copy DNA sequence data in an alloploid: the B genome of wheat. In domesticated wheat, grains are larger, and the seeds (inside the spikelets) remain attached to the ear by a toughened rachis during harvesting. Israel Journal of Plant Sciences: Vol. (). The domestication of wheat around 10,000 years ago marked a dramatic turn in the development and evolution of human civilization, as it enabled the transition from a hunter-gatherer and nomadic pastoral society to a more sedentary agrarian one.

One of the ongoing arguments about wheat is the length of time it took for the domestication process to complete. Bread wheat is one of the most important crops in the world. Domestication of these crops from their wild ancestors required the evolution of traits useful to humans … Intraspecific variation in, Ozkan H, Brandolini A, Schafer-Pregl R, Salamini F (2002) AFLP analysis of a collection of tetraploid wheats indicates the origin of emmer and hard wheat domestication in Southeast Turkey.

It is known that AP2 factors can be regulated by the miR172 miRNA, and that Q bears a mutation in the miR172 binding site, but how this putative regulation affects the phenotypes associated with domestication has been unclear.

Wheat Evolution, Domestication, and Improvement Perry Gustafson, Olga Raskina, XueFeng Ma, and Eviatar Nevo INTRODUCTION Cereals, including wheat (Triticum spp. Notably, domesticated varieties possess a subcompact spike and a loss of the tough glumes that protect the grain, leading to a free-threshing phenotype. Domestication genes of the annual grass wheat are highly conserved in the perennial intermediate wheatgrass (Thinopyrum intermedium), providing an opportunity for accelerated domestication of a perennial grain using a mutagenesis approach. The emergence of agriculture in the Near East also involved the domestication of einkorn wheat. Cultivation and repeated harvesting and sowing of the grains of wild grasses led to the creation of domestic strains, as mutant forms ('sports') of wheat were preferentially chosen by farmers.

Wheat is primarily a cool season crop, but is broadly adapted to many types of … In this study, we investigate the contribution of TEs to the wheat small RNA immune response to the lineage-specific, obligate powdery mildew pathogen. Domestication of wheat resulted from mutations that gave rise to traits such as soft glumes, a nonfragile rachis, and the free-threshing character.

A new preLight by Paul Sanchez and Stefano Vianello highlights a recent preprint by Jorge Torres-Paz and Slyvie Rétaux, which describes new experimental approaches to cavefish development. Wild emmer wheat, Triticum dicoccoides , is the progenitor of modern tetraploid and hexaploid cultivated wheats. These early domesticates were staple crops of early farmers for several thousand years before being replaced by free-threshing wheats. Wheat and barley are two of the founder crops of the agricultural revolution that took place 10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent and both crops remain among the world's most important crops. is one of the founder crops that likely drove the Neolithic transition to sedentary agrarian societies in the Fertile Crescent more than 10,000 years ago.Identifying genetic modifications underlying wheat's domestication requires knowledge about the genome of its allo-tetraploid progenitor, wild emmer (T. turgidum ssp.

Cultivated wheats generally have the hypermorphic Q allele, whereas wild varieties have the q variant, associated with lower AP2 activity. Prior to the advent of whole‐genome studies, molecular markers enabled the first attempts to use genetics to characterize major domestication genes and to establish the domestication centers of our crops, including wheat and barley.

A thorough and comprehensive understanding of wheat evolution and domestication will provide critical knowledge to the spawning of a new agricultural revolution, which will be necessary to provide sustenance for a rapidly increasing world population under global climate change. Whole-genome sequence analysis, additional genetic studies, and advances in archaeology will likely address our unanswered questions in the future. Alternative splicing (AS) occurs extensively in eukaryotes as an important mechanism for regulating transcriptome complexity and proteome diversity, but variation in the AS landscape in response to domestication and polyploidization in crops is unclear.

Together, these two papers convincingly demonstrate that tight regulation of Q by miR172 is important for the acquisition of free-threshing character in domesticated wheat varieties, and help to resolve prior controversies as to the mechanism underlying the Q phenotype.
