A Robust, Simple Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS) Approach for High Diversity Species
TLDR
A procedure for constructing GBS libraries based on reducing genome complexity with restriction enzymes (REs) is reported, which is simple, quick, extremely specific, highly reproducible, and may reach important regions of the genome that are inaccessible to sequence capture approaches. Expand
Maize association population: a high-resolution platform for quantitative trait locus dissection.
TLDR
This new association population of 302 lines has the potential to identify QTL with small effects, which will aid in dissecting complex traits and in planning future projects to exploit the rich diversity present in maize. Expand
An evaluation of the utility of SSR loci as molecular markers in maize (Zea mays L.): comparisons with data from RFLPS and pedigree
TLDR
SSR technology presents the potential advantages of reliability, reproducibility, discrimination, standardization and cost effectiveness over RFLPs, and represents the optimum approach for the identification and pedigree validation of maize genotypes compared to other currently available methods. Expand
The Genetic Architecture of Maize Flowering Time
TLDR
A simple additive model accurately predicts flowering time for maize, in contrast to the genetic architecture observed in the selfing plant species rice and Arabidopsis. Expand
Genetic Properties of the Maize Nested Association Mapping Population
TLDR
Maize genetic diversity has been used to understand the molecular basis of phenotypic variation and to improve agricultural efficiency and sustainability and it is suggested that selection in inbred lines has been less efficient in these regions because of reduced recombination frequency. Expand
Population genomic and genome-wide association studies of agroclimatic traits in sorghum
TLDR
This genome-wide map of SNP variation in sorghum provides a basis for crop improvement through marker-assisted breeding and genomic selection and traces the independent spread of multiple haplotypes carrying alleles for short stature or long inflorescence branches. Expand
Comprehensive genotyping of the USA national maize inbred seed bank
TLDR
A new low-cost, high-throughput sequencing technology was used to genotype 2,815 maize inbred accessions, preserved mostly at the National Plant Germplasm System in the USA, finding trait associations at SNPs very close to known candidate genes for kernel color, sweet corn, and flowering time. Expand
Genetic Improvement of Sorghum as a Biofuel Feedstock: I. QTL for Stem Sugar and Grain Nonstructural Carbohydrates
TLDR
It is concluded that altering grain and stem sugar genetic potential for yield traits should lead to greater feedstock improvement than altering composition traits. Expand
Novel Methods to Optimize Genotypic Imputation for Low‐Coverage, Next‐Generation Sequence Data in Crop Plants
TLDR
This work introduces Full‐Sib Family Haplotype Imputation (FSFHap), optimized for full‐sib populations, and a generalized method, Fast Inbred Line Library ImputatioN (FILLIN), to rapidly and accurately impute missing genotypes in GBS‐type data with ordered markers. Expand
Rare genetic variation at Zea mays crtRB1 increases β-carotene in maize grain
TLDR
Experimental evidence from association and linkage populations in maize demonstrate that the gene encoding β-carotene hydroxylase 1 (crtRB1) underlies a principal quantitative trait locus associated with β- carotene concentration and conversion in maize kernels. Expand
