Cultivated wheat germplasm is poor of genetic diversity and needs the injection of new genes and alleles from less cultivated materials to improve the performance of future wheat cultivars. I will present the tetraploid wheat germplasm resources of the CREA- Research Centre for Genomics and Bioinformatics, and ongoing mapping approaches for disease resistance, also based on the recent release of the T. durum reference genome.
