Vogel, K.P., Johnson, V.A. and Mattern, P.J. (1973) Results of systematic analyses for protein and lysine composition of common wheats (Triticum aestivum L.) in the USDA World Collection (Research Bulletin No. 258)
Protein and lysine contents of 12,613 common wheats of the USDA World Wheat Collection were determined in order to identify wheats that may be sources of genes for high protein and high lysine. Results indicate that significant genetic differences in protein and lysine content probably exist among world collection common wheats. Selection criteria have been developed for further evaluation of World Collection lines high in protein and lysine content.
