Pedigree, marker recruitment, and genetic diversity of modern sugarcane cultivars in China and the United States


Sugarcane (Saccharum spp) is an important crop for both sugar and biofuel production. However, the sugarcane breeding process has resulted in modern sugarcane cultivars with a narrow genetic basis. To broaden the genetic basis and promote international collaborations in sugarcane cultivar development, we documented the peidgrees of representative sugarcane… (More)
