Characterization of European forage maize lines for stover composition and associations with polymorphisms within O-methyltransferase genes.

Abstract

Cell wall components, such as lignin, cellulose, and hemicelluloses, play an important role in the conversion efficiency of corn stover into ethanol. Understanding the molecular basis of cell wall formation is fundamental for marker assisted selection to develop lines more suitable for ethanol production. In this study, we evaluated a set of 40 European… (More)
