To avoid being a nuisance to those who are not interested, we send our newsletter only to those who subscribe. Past issues of the newsletter can be accessed here:


  • Issue 13 (January 2019): Publications and markers for barley CCN and powdery mildew. Markers for scald in barley and for P. neglectus and tan spot in wheat. Correction to an item in this newsletter: the scald resistance gene from Pamunkey is on chromosome 1H, not 7H.
  • Issue 12 (January 2018): Steering committee meetings in March; markers for powdery mildew (wheat) and net form net blotch (barley). Correction to an item in this newsletter: Magenta (not Machete) is the source of the powdery mildew resistance.
  • Issue 11 (December 2017): Wheat: tan spot, Snn1, Snn3, P. thornei. Barley: scald, P. neglectus , powdery mildew.
  • Issue 10 (February 2017): Tan spot in wheat / Powdery mildew in barley / Marker meetings in March
  • Issue 9 (October 2016): P. thornei in barley and wheat; Crown rot in wheat / Pre-harvest sprouting

  • Issue 7 (November 2015): Crown rot in wheat / CCN, grain beta-glucan and boron tolerance in barley [CORRECTION: the newsletter erroneously  says that the new CCN marker is for Rha2 --- it is for Rha4]
  • Issue 6 (May 2015): New markers for P. thornei resistance in wheat / New marker for MlLa powdery mildew resistance in barley
  • Issue 5 (March 2015): Steering committee meetings 11 and 12 March / New publications
