Allopolyploidy plays an important role in plant evolution and confers obvious advantages on crop growth and breeding compared to low ploidy levels. The present investigation was aimed at synthesising the first known chromosomally stable hexaploid Brassica with the genome constitution AABBCC. More than 2,000 putative hexaploid plants were obtained through(More)
Accumulated evidence has shown that each of the three basic Brassica genomes (A, B and C) has undergone profound changes in different species, and has led to the concept of the "subgenome". Significant intersubgenomic heterosis was observed in hybrids between traditional Brassica napus and first generation lines of new type B. napus. The latter were(More)
To develop doubled haploid (DH) mapping populations of hexaploid Brassica, 10 F1 hybrids derived from crosses between allohexaploid Brassica parents were evaluated in this study. The allohexaploid Brassica parents were selfed progenies of unique interspecific crosses between Brassica rapa (genome AA) × B. carinata (BBCC), B. nigra (BB) × B. napus (AACC),(More)
Developing a fully functional hybrid system is a must for hybrid breeding in Brassica juncea. The B. napus Ogura cms hybrid system was transferred into B. juncea by the researchers at INRA, France. The B. juncea restorer (R) line (RfoRfo) exhibited poor vigor, low fertility and was black-seeded due to linkage drag. Our studies indicated that the Rfo gene in(More)
Intersubgenomic heterosis in rapeseed has been revealed in previous studies by using traditional Brassica napus (A(n)A(n)C(n)C(n)) to cross partial new type B. napus with A(r)/C(c) introgression from the genomes of B. rapa and B. carinata, respectively. To further enlarge the genetic basis of B. napus and to facilitate a sustained heterosis breeding in(More)
Development of yellow mustard (Sinapis alba L.) with superior quality traits (low erucic and linolenic acid contents, and low glucosinolate content) can make this species as a potential oilseed crop. We have recently isolated three inbred lines Y1127, Y514 and Y1035 with low (3.8%), medium (12.3%) and high (20.8%) linolenic acid (C18∶3) content,(More)
