Mapping of QTLs conferring extremely early heading in rice (Oryza sativa L.)

  author={Kenji Fujino and Hiroshi Sekiguchi},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
Two genes related to extremely early heading were identified in populations derived from crosses between Hoshinoyume, a variety adapted to the northernmost limit of rice cultivation (Hokkaido), and Nipponbare, a variety adapted to the temperate region of Japan. The segregations for heading date clearly revealed that a two-gene model determined the extremely early heading in the F2 and BC1F1 populations under natural field conditions in Hokkaido. Using molecular markers corresponding to ten… CONTINUE READING
