Background Tree breeding is logistically complex and expensive, and breeders have long sought to use molecular markers to accelerate breeding. A candidate gene approach based on testing for association between the presence of DNA sequence variation in or near candidate genes, and phenotypic variation in a population has long been explored [1,2]. However, using candidate gene approach (QTLs) has not been successful in breeding [3,4]. QTL-trait associations detected in one genetic background are… CONTINUE READING
