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, ...
Detection of genetic integrity of conserved maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm in genebanks using SNP markers
Twenty maize landrace accessions regenerated and conserved in five maize genebanks were investigated for genetic integrity using 1,150 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and 235 SNP haplotypes. The genetic diversity ...
