Brassica oleracea contains several subspecies, including cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Chinese kale and kohlrabi. The petals of B. oleracea are either yellow or white. Cabbages usually have yellow petals, while Chinese kale mostly has white petals. However, the molecular mechanism of petal color formation in B. oleracea is unknown. In this study, F2 and(More)
Cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.) is one of the most popular cultivated vegetables worldwide. Cabbage has rich phenotypic diversity, including plant height, head shape, head color, leaf shape and leaf color. Leaf color plays an important role in cabbage growth and development. At present, there are few reports on fine mapping of leaf color(More)
A novel allele-specific Rfo marker was developed and proved to be effective for MAS of Rfo gene in B. oleracea background and six Ogu-CMS fertility-restored interspecific hybrids were created for the first time. Ogura cytoplasmic male sterility (Ogu-CMS) has been extensively used for Brassica oleracea hybrid production. However, because of maternal(More)
We describe a comprehensive quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis for 24 main agronomic traits of cabbage. Field experiments were performed using a 196-line double haploid population in three seasons in 2011 and 2012 to evaluate important agronomic traits related to plant type, leaf, and head traits. In total, 144 QTLs with LOD threshold >3.0 were(More)
