Cover for Genetic analysis and QTL mapping for cytosolic glutamine synthetase (GS) and germination traits in maize grain.

To determine (1) the correlation among imbibition time at which 50% of maize seeds germinate (T50), 1000-kernel weight (TKW) and glutamine synthetase [glutamate-ammonia ligase] (GS) activity and (2) the quantitative trait locus (QTL) for the traits, the following investigations were carried out:...

Cover for Global view of QTL: rice as a model.

In QTL analysis, rice has been receiving exceptional attention, because it has been used as a model plant in molecular biology. It contains approximately 3.5 times as much DNA as Arabidopsis, but only approximately 20% as much as maize and approximately 3% as much DNA as wheat. In this chapter, QTL ...
