Meta-analysis of constitutive QTLs for disease resistance in maize and its synteny conservation in the rice genome

L. Zhao, Liu, H. J., Zhang, C. X., Wang, Q. Y., and Li, X. H., Meta-analysis of constitutive QTLs for disease resistance in maize and its synteny conservation in the rice genome, vol. 14, pp. 961-970, 2015.

We collected data regarding 340 disease resistance quantitative trait loci (QTLs) from the maize genomic database (MaizeGDB). We constructed an integrated linkage map and analyzed this map by using the BioMercator 2.1 software with IBM2 2008 Neighbors genetic linkage map as a reference. We used a meta-analysis method to identify five “consensus” synthetic resistance QTLs located on maize chromosomes 1, 3, 6, and 10, with map intervals of 5.14, 9.00, 28.50, 1.73, and 33.34 cM, respectively.
