Major quality trait analysis and QTL detection in hexaploid wheat in humid rain-fed agriculture

H. M. Li, Tang, Z. X., Zhang, H. Q., Yan, B. J., and Ren, Z. L., Major quality trait analysis and QTL detection in hexaploid wheat in humid rain-fed agriculture, vol. 12, pp. 1740-1751, 2013.

Humid rain-fed agriculture is a special environment for wheat (Triticum aestivum) culture that tends to negatively affect wheat yield and quality. To identify quality characters of wheat in a humid environment, we conducted quality analysis and quantitative trait loci (QTL) detection in a recombinant inbred line whose parent had a high level of quality for several years. We found that high-quality wheat had less gluten content and lower protein content. Apparently, wheat quality and associated quantity traits were in a dynamic state of equilibrium.
