Dissecting repulsion linkage in the dwarfing gene Dw3 region for sorghum plant height provides insights into heterosis.


Heterosis is a main contributor to yield increase in many crop species. Different mechanisms have been proposed for heterosis: dominance, overdominance, epistasis, epigenetics, and protein metabolite changes. However, only limited examples of molecular dissection and validation of these mechanisms are available. Here, we present an example of discovery and… (More)
