BackgroundCotton germplasm resources contain beneficial alleles that can be exploited to develop germplasm adapted to emerging environmental and climate conditions. Accessions and lines have traditionally been characterized based on phenotypes, but phenotypic profiles are limited by the cost, time, and space required to make visual observations and measurements. With advances in molecular genetic methods, genotypic profiles are increasingly able to identify differences among accessions due to… 

Genomic divergence in cotton germplasm related to maturity and heterosis.

The overlap between lineage-specific regions and heterozygous loci, in the high-yield hybrids, suggests a role for these regions in cotton heterosis, and provides insight into the population structure of upland cotton germplasm.

Molecular Dissection for Boll Shedding in Upland Cotton Using Microsatellites

The preliminary results set the stage for initiating in depth marker-trait association studies, which will be instrumental for initiating marker-assisted breeding in cotton, and suggests further elaborating the molecular genetic diversity by using new SSR marker to improve the yield of cotton cultivars.

Evaluation of the genetic diversity of fibre quality traits in upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) inferred from phenotypic variations

It is found that fibre quality traits showed a wide range of variation among the G. hirsutum accessions over 2 years, and accessions from outside China tended to have higher fibre length and fibre strength than did Chinese accessions.

Genome-Wide Dissection of the Genetic Basis for Drought Tolerance in Gossypium hirsutum L. Races

The results showed that three candidate genes, Gh_D08G2462, Gh-A03G0043, and Gh_A12G0369, may play important roles in drought tolerance in G. hirsutum races and provides important information for improving cotton cultivars.

Identification of novel sources of genetic variation for the improvement of cold germination ability in upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum)

Results of the study indicate the potential of the mutants and select GDRS accessions as donors in breeding for cold germination ability and the tolerance of the FA mutants to cold stress during germination is proposed to be conferred by the higher proportion of unsaturated to saturated fatty acids in the mutants compared to the GDRSAccessions.

Past, Present and Future Trends in Cotton Breeding

This chapter narrates genetic diversity, QTL mapping, association mapping and QTLs related to fiber quality traits, which will pave the way for increase in fiber production.

Genetic Diversity Analysis and Mapping of Fiber Quality and Flowering Time Traits in Tetraploid Cotton.

Genetic diversity and population structure analyses suggest landraces of Guatemala could be potential source of novel genetic variability for the US cotton and multiple core sets with different levels of allele richness were identified.

Genetic analysis of the transition from wild to domesticated cotton (G. hirsutum L.)

It is concluded that the evolutionary forces that shape intraspecific divergence and domestication in cotton are complex, and that phenotypic transformations likely involved multiple interacting and environmentally responsive factors.

Identification and genomic characterization of major effect bacterial blight resistance locus (BB-13) in Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.).

Genetic mapping and genomic targeting of the BB13 locus in the current study will help in cloning the CBB-resistant gene and establishing the molecular genetic architecture of theBB-13 locu towards developing durable resistance to CBB in cotton.



Development and bin mapping of gene-associated interspecific SNPs for cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) introgression breeding efforts

This large set of 62,832 non-redundant SNP markers developed will allow for the first high-density mapping of genes from five wild species that affect traits of interest, including beneficial agronomic and fiber characteristics.

Genetic dissection of upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) cultivars developed in Hubei Province by mapped SSRs.

This study will provide a guide for breeders to develop new cultivars efficiently and to choose parents, and it supports the need to introduce new alleles into the gene pool of the upland cotton breeding program in Hubei Province.

Sampling nucleotide diversity in cotton

This research provides mapped DNA markers for intra-specific crosses and introgression of exotic germplasm in cotton and indicates that the A and D genomes in both diploid and tetraploid cotton remain distinct from each such that paralogs can be distinguished.

A Long‐Read Transcriptome Assembly of Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) and Intraspecific Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Discovery

Availability of the reference transcriptome assembly of the inbred line Texas Marker‐1 is reported and its utility in developing intraspecific SNP markers in upland cotton is shown.

Analysis of genetic diversity, population structure and linkage disequilibrium in elite cotton (Gossypium L.) germplasm in India

The genetic diversity in tetraploid cotton species was found to be less than that in the diploid species, and a strong agreement was noticed between the clusters constructed on the basis of morphological and genotyping data.

Genetic diversity and population structure assessed by SSR and SNP markers in a large germplasm collection of grape

The comprehensive molecular characterization of the grape germplasm collection contributes to the knowledge about levels and distribution of genetic diversity in the existing resources of Vitis and provides insights into genetic subdivision within the European germ plasm.

Development of a 63K SNP Array for Cotton and High-Density Mapping of Intraspecific and Interspecific Populations of Gossypium spp.

The produced intraspecific genetic map is the first saturated map that associates into 26 linkage groups corresponding to the number of cotton chromosomes for a cross between two G. hirsutum lines.

Genetic Diversity of the Two Commercial Tetraploid Cotton Species in the Gossypium Diversity Reference Set.

Molecular characterization reveals the levels and distributions of genetic diversity that will allow for better exploration and utilization of cotton genetic resources.

Linkage disequilibrium based association mapping of fiber quality traits in G. hirsutum L. variety germplasm

Results suggest linkage, selection, inbreeding, population stratification, and genetic drift as the potential LD-generating factors in cotton.
