We used quantitative trait locus/loci (QTL) mapping to study the inheritance of traits associated with perennialism in a cross between an annual (Zea mays ssp. parviglumis) and a perennial (Z. diploperennis) species of teosinte. The most striking difference between these species is that Z. diploperennis forms rhizomes, whereas Z. mays ssp. parviglumis lacks these over-wintering underground stems. An F2 population of 425 individuals was genotyped at 95 restriction fragment length polymorphism… CONTINUE READING
