Mapping QTLs and meta-QTLs for two inflorescence architecture traits in multiple maize populations under different watering environments

Abstract

Drought significantly affects the architectural development of maize inflorescence, which leads to massive losses in grain yield. However, the genetic mechanism for traits involved in inflorescence architecture in different watering environments, remains poorly understood in maize. In this study, 19 QTLs for tassel primary branch number (TBN) and ear number… (More)
