Genetic analysis and molecular mapping of genes controlling seed coat colour in adzuki bean (Vigna angularis)

Seed coat colour is an important agronomic trait in adzuki bean (Vigna angularis). Here, we identified four genes controlling seed coat colour in this species. We conducted a quantitative trait locus (QTL) study of 133 recombinant inbred lines (F6) derived from a cross between V. angularis Shumari (red) and landrace Acc2265 (olive buff), by using simple… CONTINUE READING
