Human selection during crop domestication has resulted in remarkable transformations of plant phenotypes, providing a window into the genetic basis of morphological evolution. Recent progress in our understanding of the genetic architecture of novel plant traits has emerged from combining advanced molecular technologies with improved experimental designs, including nested association mapping, genome-wide association studies, population genetic screens for signatures of selection, and candidate… Expand
Evolutionary insights into plant breeding.
TLDR
This work highlights recent advances related to the role of selective sweeps and demographic history in shaping genetic architecture, how these breakthroughs can inform selection strategies, and the application of precision gene editing to leverage these connections. Expand
Induced Mutations in Plant Breeding
TLDR
Allelic diversity in candidate genes, whether induced naturally or experimentally, can be a resource in breeding programs for developing new agricultural traits and an alternative approach to increasing the precision of mutation breeding is through gene-specific mutation using engineered nucleases. Expand
Engineering Quantitative Trait Variation for Crop Improvement by Genome Editing
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing of promoters generates diverse cis-regulatory alleles that provide beneficial quantitative variation for breeding that provide a foundation for dissecting complex relationships between gene-reg regulatory changes and control of quantitative traits. Expand
The genetic architecture of teosinte catalyzed and constrained maize domestication
TLDR
A strong, nonneutral divergence is identified between teosinte and maize landrace genetic variance–covariance matrices (G-matrices), which indicates that the degree of constraint is more unfavorable for further evolution along the same trajectory. Expand
The Impact of Genetic Changes during Crop Domestication
TLDR
The outcomes of crop domestication were shaped by selection driven by human preferences, cultivation practices, and agricultural environments, as well as other population genetic processes flowing from the ensuing reduction in effective population size. Expand
Natural variations and genome-wide association studies in crop plants.
TLDR
The development of sequencing-based genotyping and genome-wide association studies in crops are described and the advent of high-throughput sequencing technology enables rapid and accurate resequencing of a large number of crop genomes to detect the genetic basis of phenotypic variations in crops. Expand
Evolution of crop species: genetics of domestication and diversification
TLDR
Together, these studies reveal the functions of genes that are involved in the evolution of crops that are under domestication, the types of mutations that occur during this process and the parallelism of mutations That occur in the same pathways and proteins, as well as the selective forces that are acting on these mutations. Expand
Advanced domestication: harnessing the precision of gene editing in crop breeding
TLDR
The use of CRISPR/Cas‐based gene editing is highlighted to fix desirable allelic variants, generate novel alleles, break deleterious genetic linkages, support pre‐breeding and for introgression of favourable loci into elite lines. Expand
Genomic approaches for studying crop evolution
TLDR
This work proposes three future avenues for the study of crop evolution: establishment of high-quality reference genomes for crops and their wild relatives; genomic characterization of germplasm collections; and the adoption of novel methodologies such as archaeogenetics, epigenomics, and genome editing. Expand
Beyond the single gene: How epistasis and gene-by-environment effects influence crop domestication
TLDR
Analyzing two domestication-related traits, shattering and flowering time, in a mapping population derived from a cross between domesticated foxtail millet and its wild progenitor suggests those favored during domestication often have large phenotypic effects and are relatively insensitive to genetic background and environmental effects.
