Rye-wheat introgression & alien translocations
Rolf Schlegel has put together an extensive list of all wheat varieties containing the 1RS.1BL translocation and recently updated his website at
Recent surveys show that more than 45 % of breeding material may contain those translocations (Zhou et al. 2007) or 55% of CIMMYT bread wheat germplasm. This translocation has been deemed so important that it has been incorporated into >60 wheat varieties that occupy >50% of all developing country wheat area, almost 40 million hectares.
