A single nucleotide polymorphism in the Waxy gene explains a significant component of gel consistency


Gel consistency (GC) is a standard assay used in rice improvement programmes to determine whether rice cultivars/breeding lines of high amylose content are soft or firm textured when cooked. In this study, we show that sequence variation in exon 10 of the Waxy (Wx) gene associates with GC using RILs derived from parents with high amylose content that differ… (More)
