A cross between the open-pollinated Brassica oleracea cabbage cultivar ‘Wisconsin Golden Acre’ and the hybrid broccoli cultivar ‘Packman’ was used with molecular markers to investigate the genetic control of morphological variation. Twenty-two traits derived from leaf, stem, and flowering measurements were analyzed in 90 F2 individuals that were also classified for genotype by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) markers. Seventy-two RFLP loci, which covered the mapped genome at an… CONTINUE READING
