Mapping quantitative trait loci for salt tolerance at germination and the seedling stage in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controlling salt tolerance at germination and the seedling stage in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) were identified by interval mapping analysis using marker information from two doubled haploid (DH) populations derived from the crosses, Steptoe/Morex and Harrington/TR306. Interval mapping analysis revealed that the QTLs for salt… CONTINUE READING
