Detection of QTL in multiple segregating populations is of high interest as it includes more alleles than mapping in a single biparental population. In addition, such populations are routinely generated in applied plant breeding programs and can thus be used to identify QTL which are of direct relevance for a marker-assisted improvement of elite germplasm.(More)
Brassica napus (oilseed rape, canola) is one of the world's most important sources of vegetable oil for human nutrition and biofuel, and also a model species for studies investigating the evolutionary consequences of polyploidisation. Strong bottlenecks during its recent origin from interspecific hybridisation, and subsequently through intensive artificial(More)
