Use of SSRs for establishing heterotic groups in subtropical maize
Heterotic groups and patterns are of fundamental importance in hybrid breeding. The objectives of our research were to: (1) investigate the relationship of simple sequence repeats (SSR) based genetic distances between ...
Construction of a SSR linkage map and mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for leaf angle and leaf orientation with an elite maize hybrid
Maize (Zea mays L.) breeders have begun selecting for more compact plants for higher density planting in order to increase yield per unit area. Leaf angle and leaf orientation are very important traits affecting maize plant ...
Genetic distance based on SSR markers and testcross performance of maize inbred lines
The identification of parental inbred lines to develop superior hybrids is a rather costly and time-consuming step in maize breeding. In some cases, pedigree information has been used to select diverse parental lines. In ...
An analysis of population structure and linkage disequilibrium using multilocus data in 187 maize inbred lines
This study analyzes population structure and linkage disequilibrium (LD) among 187 commonly used Chinese maize inbred lines, representing the genetic diversity among public, commercial and historically important lines for ...
A method for combining molecular markers and phenotypic attributes for classifying plant genotypes
Abstract Classifying genotypes into clusters based on DNA fingerprinting, and/or agronomic attributes, for studying genetic and phenotypic diversity is a common practice. Researchers are interested in knowing the minimum ...
