Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are abundant and evenly distributed throughout the maize (Zea mays L.) genome. SNPs have several advantages over simple sequence repeats, such as ease of data comparison and integration, high-throughput processing of loci, and identification of associated phenotypes. SNPs are thus ideal for DNA fingerprinting, genetic(More)
A field experiment was conducted to study the morphological, physiological, and yield traits of 24 maize cultivars under 50% shading. Comparing with the control, 50% shading decreased the plant height, stem diameter, leaf net photosynthetic rate (Pn), specific leaf weight (SLW), aboveground dry matter accumulation, ear length and diameter, axis diameter,(More)
