Publically available SNP array increases the marker density for genotyping of forage crop, Lolium perenne . Applied to 90 European ecotypes composed of 716 individuals identifies a significant genetic–geographic correlation. Grassland ecosystems are ubiquitous across temperate and tropical regions, totalling 37 % of the terrestrial land cover of the planet, and thus represent a global resource for understanding local adaptations to environment. However, genomic resources for grass species… CONTINUE READING
