An early flowering mutant plant of Eucalyptus grandis with normal vegetative growth was found in a nursery in northern Brazil. This mutant plant flowers at approximately 90 days from germination. A cross between a wild-type (normal flowering) tree and the mutant was carried out, generating a progeny of 88 individuals where early flowering segregated in an approximate 1:1 ratio. A genome scan with 100 microsatellite markers distributed across the genome was carried out using bulk segregant… CONTINUE READING
