(Options Méditerranéennes : Série A. Séminaires Méditerranéens; n. 110). International Symposium : Genetics and Breeding of Durum Wheat, 2013/05/27-30, Rome (Italy).


This book reports the proceedings of the Symposium on Genetics and Breeding of Durum Wheat organized by the Italian Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze in cooperation with the Italian National Research Council, ICARDA, CIMMYT, FAO, ENEA and CIHEAM, with the support of private pasta processing companies. The Symposium was dedicated to the memory of Gian Tommaso Scarascia Mugnozza and took place in Rome (Italy) on 27 to 30 May 2013. The purpose of the symposium was to review the state of research in the genetics and breeding of durum wheat, and to provide an opportunity for discussing of the many problems and opportunities in this broad field of study. Because of the world-wide importance of durum wheat, the symposium was open to scientists active in many countries interested in the cultivation of the species. The attendance was noteworthy, in term of both participants and quality of contributions; there were 270 participants from 44 countries as well as experts and representatives of national and international organizations. Sixteen invited lectures, 36 contributions and 142 posters were discussed during the meeting. A selection of them has been included in these proceedings. The symposium also offered occasion to the participants to visit the genetic material grown at the Research Unit for Cereal Quality of the Italian Council for Agricultural Research, in Rome.
