Genetic and genomic dissection of maize root development and architecture.

Abstract

The complex architecture and plasticity of the maize root system is controlled by a plethora of genes. Mutant analyses have identified genes regulating shoot-borne root initiation (RTCS) and root hair elongation (RTH1 and RTH3). Quantitative trait locus (QTL) studies have highlighted the importance of seminal roots, lateral roots, and root hairs in… (More)
