In this study, we aimed at finding the genetic regularity of grape maturation period. Early-maturing grapevine, “87-1”, was used as the female parent and late-maturing, “9-22”, as the male parent, to create an F1 hybrid population. A total of 149 individual plants and their parents were selected as the mapping population. Sequence-related amplified polymorphism and simple-sequence repeat analyses were performed. We performed a linkage analysis and constructed a molecular genetic map.
Flowering-related traits in maize are affected by complex factors and are important for the improvement of cropping systems in the maize zone. Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) detected using different materials and methods usually vary.
Panicle exsertion (PE) is an important morphological trait that is closely associated with spikelet fertility and grain yield. To understand the genetic basis of PE and its relationships with yield and yield-related traits, a recombinant inbred population consisting of 240 lines derived from a cross between an Indica cultivar ‘Kasalath’ and a Japonica germplasm ‘TD70’, was studied over two years.
