QTL verification of grain protein content and its correlation with oil content by using connected RIL populations of high-oil maize

G. H. Yang, Dong, Y. B., Li, Y. L., Wang, Q. L., Shi, Q. L., and Zhou, Q., QTL verification of grain protein content and its correlation with oil content by using connected RIL populations of high-oil maize, vol. 13, pp. 881-894, 2014.

Maize with high grain protein and oil contents offers great advantages for human food and animal feed. In this study, grain protein contents of 282 and 263 F7:8 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of 2 crosses were evaluated in 4 environments within and between populations. The RILs were developed from crosses between an inbred high-oil maize line and 2 normal dent inbred maize lines.
