Maize brown midrib1 (bm1) mutant plants have reduced lignin content and offer significant advantages when used in silage and biofuel applications. Cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD) catalyzes the conversion of hydroxycinnamyl aldehydes to monolignols, a key step in lignin biosynthesis. Maize CAD2 has been implicated as the underlying gene for(More)
An accurate determination of gene copy number is critical to the success of a molecular breeding program involving both transgenic and non-transgenic plants. In this paper, we have described the application of a non-PCR-based technology, Invader®*, for determination of gene copy number and zygosity in plants. A biplex assay format detected both a target(More)
