Bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.) is one of the most important vegetables in Japan. Although expressed sequence tag (EST)-derived markers for bulb onion (A. cepa L.) have been developed from medium-scale sequencing, comparable EST sequences in bunching onion are lacking. In this study, we obtained 54,903 bunching onion unigenes using transcriptome(More)
Low pungency is one of the most important agronomic traits in bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.). Although the degree of pungency can be evaluated indirectly using a colorimetric test for pyruvic acid, DNA markers linked to low-pungency quantitative trait loci (QTLs) are still desired. In this study, we evaluated pungency in the bunching onion pseudostem(More)
Late bolting is one of the most important agronomic traits in bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.) because it affects the yield and quality of the harvested products during the spring and early summer. However, genetic and molecular studies of bolting time in bunching onion have not been reported thus far. To understand the genetic basis of bolting time in(More)
To investigate the mode of inheritance of apomixis in Chinese chive, the degrees of diplospory and parthenogenesis were evaluated in F(1) and BC(1) progenies derived from crosses between amphimictic and apomictic diploids (2n = 16, 2x). The F(1) population was generated by crossing three amphimictic diploids 94Mo13, 94Mo49 and 94Mo50 with an apomictic(More)
