Linkage disequilibrium based association mapping is a powerful tool for dissecting the genetic basis underlying complex traits. In this study, an association mapping panel consisting of 356 representative Upland cotton cultivars was constructed, evaluated in three environments and genotyped using 381 SSRs to detect molecular markers associated with lint(More)
Cotton is the world's leading cash crop, and genetic improvement of fiber yield and quality is the primary objective of cotton breeding program. In this study, we used various approaches to identify QTLs related to fiber yield and quality. Firstly, we constructed a four-way cross (4WC) mapping population with four base core cultivars, Stoneville 2B, Foster(More)
Cotton is a high-value per acre crop that is produced as a raw material for the textile industry. With the development of new technologies in the textile industry, much attention has been paid to fiber quality in conjunction with yield. The introgression cultivar “Acala Prema” is extensively planted in the Carolina/USA for its good fiber qualities, high(More)
Fusarium wilt is a worldwide disease that affects cotton production. Molecular markers tightly linked to resistance genes can be used for marker-assisted and/or genomic selection. We performed both family-based linkage mapping and population-based association mapping (AM) to detect quantitative trait loci (QTLs) conferring resistance against Fusarium(More)
Linkage disequilibrium-based association mapping is a powerful tool for dissecting the genetic basis underlying complex traits. In this study, an association mapping panel consisting of 180 elite Upland cotton cultivars was constructed, evaluated in three locations across 2 years and genotyped using 228 SSRs to detect molecular markers associated with seed(More)
