Genetic analysis and characterization of a new maize association mapping panel for quantitative trait loci dissection
Association mapping based on the linkage disequilibrium provides a promising tool to identify genes responsible for quantitative variations underlying complex traits. Presented here is a maize association mapping panel ...
Relationship, evolutionary fate and function of two maize co-orthologs of rice GW2 associated with kernel size and weight
Background: In rice, the GW2 gene, found on chromosome 2, controls grain width and weight. Two homologs of this gene, ZmGW2-CHR4 and ZmGW2-CHR5, have been found in maize. In this study, we investigated the relationship, ...
Genetic diversity in CIMMYT nontemperate maize germplasm: Landraces, open pollinated varieties, and inbred lines
CIMMYT is the source of improved maize (Zea mays L.) breeding material for a significant portion of the nontemperate maize growing world. Landraces which did not serve as sources for improved maize germplasm may contain ...
