Meta-analysis of constitutive and adaptive QTL for drought tolerance in maize
The response of plants to drought stress is very complex and involves expression of a lot of genes and pathways for diverse mechanisms and interactions with environments. Many quantitative traitExpand

Distribution and fate of perfluoroalkyl substances in municipal wastewater treatment plants in economically developed areas of China.
Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are a significant source for poly-/perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) entering the environment. The presence of PFASs in twenty-eight municipal WWTPs from elevenExpand

Genetic dissection of maize plant architecture with an ultra-high density bin map based on recombinant inbred lines
BackgroundPlant architecture attributes, such as plant height, ear height, and internode number, have played an important role in the historical increases in grain yield, lodging resistance, andExpand

Genome-Wide Identification of MicroRNAs in Response to Low Nitrate Availability in Maize Leaves and Roots
Background Nitrate is the major source of nitrogen available for many crop plants and is often the limiting factor for plant growth and agricultural productivity especially for maize. Many studiesExpand

Genome-Wide Association Study Identifies Candidate Genes That Affect Plant Height in Chinese Elite Maize (Zea mays L.) Inbred Lines
Background The harvest index for many crops can be improved through introduction of dwarf stature to increase lodging resistance, combined with early maturity. The inbred line Shen5003 has beenExpand

Identification of functional genetic variations underlying drought tolerance in maize using SNP markers.
Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is a common form of genetic variation and popularly exists in maize genome. An Illumina GoldenGate assay with 1 536 SNP markers was used to genotype maize inbredExpand

Comparative LD mapping using single SNPs and haplotypes identifies QTL for plant height and biomass as secondary traits of drought tolerance in maize
Drought often delays developmental events so that plant height and above-ground biomass are reduced, resulting in yield loss due to inadequate photosynthate. In this study, plant height and biomassExpand

An alternative strategy for targeted gene replacement in plants using a dual-sgRNA/Cas9 design
Precision DNA/gene replacement is a promising genome-editing tool that is highly desirable for molecular engineering and breeding by design. Although the CRISPR/Cas9 system works well as a tool forExpand
