Synteny between a major heading-date QTL in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and the Hd3 heading-date locus in rice
The genetic control of induction to flowering has been studied extensively in both model and crop species because of its fundamental biological and economic significance. An ultimate aim of many ofExpand

Dissecting the regulation of fructan metabolism in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) with quantitative trait locus mapping.
Quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping, which can be a useful tool for dissecting complex traits, has been used here to study the regulation of fructan metabolism in temperate forage grasses. An F2Expand

Comparison and integration of genetic maps generated from F2 and BC1‐type mapping populations in perennial ryegrass
Armstead, I. P., Turner, L. B., King, I. P., Cairns, A. J., Humphreys, M. O. (2002). Comparison and integration of genetic maps generated from F2 and BC1-type mapping populations in perennialExpand

Identification and mode of action of self-compatibility loci in Lolium perenne L.
The two-locus gametophytic incompatibility system in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) is not always fully effective: obligate selfing of plants sieves self-compatible pollen mutants, andExpand

Identifying genetic components controlling fertility in the outcrossing grass species perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) by quantitative trait loci analysis and comparative genetics.
Mutational load and resource allocation factors and their effects on limiting seed set were investigated in ryegrass by comparative mapping genomics and quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis in twoExpand

A novel grass hybrid to reduce flood generation in temperate regions
We report on the evaluation of a novel grass hybrid that provides efficient forage production and could help mitigate flooding. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) is the grass species of choice forExpand

Does fructan have a functional role in physiological traits? Investigation by quantitative trait locus mapping.
* The role of fructan in growth and drought-stress responses of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) was investigated in an F(2) mapping family that segregates for carbohydrate metabolism. * AExpand

Identification of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne (L.)) and meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis (Huds.)) candidate orthologous sequences to the rice Hd1(Se1) and barley HvCO1 CONSTANS-like genes
Microsynteny with rice and comparative genetic mapping were used to identify candidate orthologous sequences to the rice Hd1(Se1) gene in Lolium perenne and Festuca pratensis. A F. pratensisExpand

Starch metabolism in the fructan-grasses: Patterns of starch accumulation in excised leaves of Loliu
Summary Excised and illuminated leaves of temperate gramineae have previously provided a powerful system for the analysis of the regulation of partitioning of photosynthate between sucrose andExpand
