A dissection of the genetic regulation of protein, oil and starch contents in maize (Zea mays L.) kernels will enhance high-quality breeding. The objective of the present research was to detect the quantitative trait loci (QTL) controlling protein, oil, starch and lysine contents in maize kernels and to dissect their inheritable relationships and basis. A population of 498 recombinant inbred lines derived from a biparental cross of two elite inbred lines were grown in six environments. All… CONTINUE READING
