Chemical and genetic diversity of high-seed-yield sorghum (Sorghum bicolor M.) germplasms

J. Ryu, Im, S. B., Kwon, S. J., Ahn, J. W., Jeong, S. W., Kang, S. Y., Ryu, J., Im, S. B., Kwon, S. J., Ahn, J. W., Jeong, S. W., and Kang, S. Y., Chemical and genetic diversity of high-seed-yield sorghum (Sorghum bicolor M.) germplasms, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

This study evaluated the chemical and genetic diversity of high-seed-yield sorghum germplasms from Korea, the United States, and South Africa. We identified significant differences in the chemical contents of whole plants at the heading stage in all cultivars, including differences in crude protein, fat, fiber, ash, neutral detergent fiber, acid detergent fiber, mineral, and fatty acid contents. Our results suggest that Banwoldang is the most appropriate cultivar for roughage because of its high protein yield.

Construction and characterization of a bacterial artificial chromosome library for the allotetraploid Gossypium tomentosum

F. Liu, Wang, Y. H., Gao, H. Y., Wang, C. Y., Zhou, Z. L., Cai, X. Y., Wang, X. X., Zhang, Z. S., and Wang, K. B., Construction and characterization of a bacterial artificial chromosome library for the allotetraploid Gossypium tomentosum, vol. 14, pp. 16975-16980, 2015.

Gossypium tomentosum is a wild allotetraploid species with the (AD)5 genome. It is characterized by many useful traits including finer fiber fineness, drought tolerance, and Fusarium and Verticillium resistance. We constructed the first bacterial artificial chromosome library for Gossypium tomentosum. With high quality and broad coverage, this library includes 200,832 clones, with an average insert size of about 122 kb and fewer than 3% empty clones.

Genetic diversity, population structure, and association mapping of agronomic traits in waxy and normal maize inbred lines

K. J. Sa, Park, J. Y., Choi, S. H., Kim, B. W., Park, K. J., and Lee, J. K., Genetic diversity, population structure, and association mapping of agronomic traits in waxy and normal maize inbred lines, vol. 14, pp. 7502-7518, 2015.

Understanding genetic diversity, population structure, and linkage disequilibrium is a prerequisite for the association mapping of complex traits in a target population. In this study, the genetic diversity and population structure of 40 waxy and 40 normal inbred maize lines were investigated using 10 morphological traits and 200 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. Based on a population structure analysis, the 80 maize inbred lines were divided into three groups: I, II, and admixed.
