Information on gene expression during cotton fiber development for high fiber quality genotypes including Pima (Gossypium barbadense L.) and Acala cotton (G. hirsutum L.) is lacking, impeding the discovery of novel genes and DNA markers for fiber quality traits. In the present study, massively parallel sequencing technology was used to generate a total of(More)
Glandless cotton can be grown for cottonseed free of toxic gossypol to be used as food and feed for non-ruminant animals. However, one of the most important limiting factors preventing its commercial production is its higher insect damage than conventional glanded cotton. Thrips is the one of the most important insect pests in the early growing season that(More)
There is a renewed interest in research and use of glandless (free of gossypol) Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) that can produce edible seeds for human food and animal feed. However, there was a lack of information on yield potential of existing glandless germplasm since intermittent breeding activities for glandless cotton were stopped in the U.S.(More)
