In this work we describe a chemically-induced short fiber mutant cotton line, Ligon-lintless-y (liy), which is controlled by a single recessive locus and affects multiple traits, including height of the plant, and length and maturity of fiber. An RNAseq analysis was used to evaluate global transcriptional changes during cotton fiber development at 3, 8 and… CONTINUE READING
