Genome-wide characterization of non-reference transposable element insertion polymorphisms reveals genetic diversity in tropical and temperate maize
(BioMed Central, 2017)
Background: Maize was originally domesticated in a tropical environment but is now widely cultivated at temperate latitudes. Temperate and tropical maize populations have diverged both genotypically and phenotypically. ...
Genome-wide association study to identify genomic regions influencing spontaneous fertility in maize haploids
Efficient production and use of doubled haploid lines can greatly accelerate genetic gains in maize breeding programs. One of the critical steps in standard doubled haploid line production is doubling the haploid genome ...
Genome-Wide Association study reveals novel genes associated with culm cellulose content in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum, L.)
Plant cell wall formation is a complex, coordinated and developmentally regulated process. Cellulose is the most dominant constituent of plant cell walls. Because of its paracrystalline structure, cellulose is the main ...
Investigation and genome-wide association study for Fusarium crown rot resistance in Chinese common wheat
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Fusarium crown rot (FCR) is a severe and chronic disease in common wheat and is able to cause serious yield loss and health problems to human and livestock. Here, 234 Chinese wheat cultivars were evaluated in four greenhouse ...
High-throughput phenotyping enabled genetic dissection of crop lodging in wheat
Novel high-throughput phenotyping (HTP) approaches are needed to advance the understanding of genotype-to-phenotype and accelerate plant breeding. The first generation of HTP has examined simple spectral reflectance traits ...
