Developing new population types based on interspecific introgressions has been suggested by several authors to facilitate the discovery of novel allelic sources for traits of agronomic importance. Chromosome segment substitution lines from interspecific crosses represent a powerful and useful genetic resource for QTL detection and breeding programs. We(More)
The domestication of O. glaber-rima occurred much later than that of O. sativa, but prior to the introduction of the latter into Africa (Sweeney and McCouch, 2007). The most recent analysis of diversity, comparing nucleotide variation of 14 independent nuclear loci between O. glaberrima and O. barthii, showed that O. glaberrima has lost 76% of the(More)
