Comparative genetics of flowering time

  title={Comparative genetics of flowering time},
  author={David A. Laurie},
  journal={Plant Molecular Biology},
Analysis of genes controlling flowering time (heading date) contributes to our understanding of fundamental principles of plant development and is of practical importance because of the effects of flowering time on plant adaptation and crop yield. This review discusses the extent to which plants may share common genetic mechanisms for the control of flowering time and the implications of such conservation for gene isolation from the major cereal crops. Gene isolation may exploit the small… CONTINUE READING
