Genebanks are entrusted with the storage, preservation and distribution of crop germplasm. Seed longevity is an important character in this context, but little is known regarding its genetic basis, largely because it is so strongly influenced by non-genetic factors. Here we present the outcome of a genetic dissection of seed longevity in bread wheat. We applied both a standard quantitative trait locus analysis based on segregation from a biparental cross, and an association analysis using a… CONTINUE READING
