Identification of QTL for oil content, seed yield, and flowering time in oilseed rape (Brassica napus)
A genetic map was constructed with 353 sequence-related amplified polymorphism and 34 simple sequence repeat markers in oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.). The map consists of 19 linkage groups andExpand

Inheritance of seed coat color of Ethiopian mustard (Brassica carinata A. Braun)
The inheritance of seed coat color was investigated in Brassica carinata in F1, F2, F3 and backcross progenies of crosses between brown- and yellow-seeded pure lines. Seed coat color in B. carinataExpand

Development of SRAP, SNP and Multiplexed SCAR molecular markers for the major seed coat color gene in Brassica rapa L.
Seed coat color inheritance in B. rapa was studied in F1, F2, F3, and BC1 progenies from a cross of a Canadian brown-seeded variety ‘SPAN’ and a Bangladeshi yellow sarson variety ‘BARI-6’. A pollenExpand

High throughput genome-specific and gene-specific molecular markers for erucic acid genes in Brassica napus (L.) for marker-assisted selection in plant breeding
A single base change in the Bn-FAE1.1 gene in the A genome and a two-base deletion in the Bn-FAE1.2 gene in the C genome produce the nearly zero content of erucic acid observed in canola. A BAC cloneExpand

Genome-wide association study of heat stress-tolerance traits in spring-type Brassica napus L. under controlled conditions
Abstract High temperatures have a detrimental effect on growth, development, and yield of Brassica napus. Even a short period of heat stress can lead to yield losses of 15%–20%. A collection ofExpand
