Comparison of SSRs and SNPs in assessment of genetic relatedness in maize
Advances in high-throughput SNP genotyping and genome sequencing technologies have enabled genome-wide association mapping in dissecting the genetic basis of complex quantitative traits. In this study, 82 SSRs and 884 SNPs ...
The genetic architecture of flowering time and photoperiod sensitivity in maize as revealed by QTL review and meta analysis
The control of flowering is not only important for reproduction, but also plays a key role in the processes of domestication and adaptation. To reveal the genetic architecture for flowering time and photoperiod sensitivity, ...
Combined small RNA and degradome sequencing reveals novel miRNAs and their targets in response to low nitrate availability in maize
Background and Aims MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play an important role in the responses and adaptation of plants to many stresses including low nitrogen (LN). Characterizing relevant miRNAs will improve our understanding of nitrogen ...
Envirotyping for deciphering environmental impacts on crop plants
(Springer-Verlag Heidelberg, 2016)
Global climate change imposes increasing impacts on our environments and crop production. To decipher environmental impacts on crop plants, the concept “envirotyping” is proposed, as a third “typing” technology, complementing ...
Agriculture and crop science in China: Innovation and sustainability
The International Crop Science Congress (ICSC) is a regularly held event allowing crop scientists from around the world to integrate current knowledge into a global context and international applications. The 7th ICSC was ...
Strand-specific RNA-Seq transcriptome analysis of genotypes with and without low-phosphorus tolerance provides novel insights into phosphorus-use efficiency in maize
(BioMed Central Ltd, 2016)
Background Phosphorus (P) stress is a global problem in maize production. Although macro/microarray technologies have greatly increased our general knowledge of maize responses to P stress, a greater understanding of the ...
Recombination frequency variation in maize as revealed by genomewide single-nucleotide polymorphisms
Recombination frequency greatly affects selection efficiency in plant breeding. A high-density single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) map integrated with physical map and other molecular maps is very useful for characterizing ...
Root-lodging resistance in maize as an example for high-throughput genetic mapping via single nucleotide polymorphism-based selective genotyping
Large-scale selective genotyping and high-throughput analysis are two important strategies for low-cost and high-effective genetic mapping. In this study, selective genotyping was applied to four maize F2 populations. ...
Development of a seed DNA-based genotyping system for marker-assisted selection in maize
Leaf collection from the field, labeling and tracking back to the source plants after genotyping are rate limiting steps in leaf DNA-based genotyping. In this study, an optimized genotyping method using endosperm DNA sampled ...
