The quality of plant oil is determined by its component fatty acids. Relatively high levels of linolenic acid reduce the oxidative stability of the oil, and high levels of erucic acid in the diet have been associated with health problems. Thus, oilseed Brassica napus cultivars with low linolenic and low erucic acid contents are highly desirable for edible(More)
The F2 generations from two maize crosses were used to compare the ability of RAPD and RFLP marker systems to create a genetic linkage map. Both RFLPs and RAPDs were shown to provide Mendelian-type markers. Most of the RFLPs (80%) could be placed with a good level of certainty (LOD>4) on the genetic linkage map. However, because of their dominant nature,(More)
