We attempted genetic analysis and mapping of a gene responsible for the trait “spikelet-tipped bristles” (stb) in foxtail millet, Setaria italica (L.) P.Beauv., as the first step in positional cloning of the gene. This trait is important not only in grain yield such as grain number per panicle of this millet but also in the evolutionary development of the(More)
We carried out genetic analysis and mapping of a gene for the tip-branched panicle (Nekode or Neko-ashi in Japanese) in foxtail millet. We revealed that this trait is controlled by a single dominant gene by using two F2 populations and designated the gene as NEKODE1. By using an F2 population between closely related Taiwanese landraces with a new method(More)
