Key messageFive quantitative trait loci and one epistatic interaction were associated with heat tolerance in a doubled haploid population of broccoli evaluated in three summer field trials.AbstractPredicted rising global temperatures due to climate change have generated a demand for crops that are resistant to yield and quality losses from heat stress. Broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) is a cool weather crop with high temperatures during production decreasing both head quality and yield… 
Identification of heat tolerance loci in broccoli through bulked segregant analysis using whole genome resequencing
TLDR
Nonsynonymous SNPs were found in a block of flowering time genes within QHT_C09.2 and may explain the significant negative correlation between time to head maturity and heat tolerance.
Major QTLs and Potential Candidate Genes for Heat Stress Tolerance Identified in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
TLDR
Thirty-two candidate genes in the QTL regions that encode the heat shock protein genes, heat shock transcription factors, are involved in flowering time regulation as well as pollen-specific genes, which may be useful in molecular breeding for developing heat-tolerant superior lines or varieties.
Complex Horticultural Quality Traits in Broccoli Are Illuminated by Evaluation of the Immortal BolTBDH Mapping Population
TLDR
The BolTBDH population provides a framework for B. oleracea improvement by targeting key genomic loci contributing to high horticultural quality broccoli and enabling de novo mapping of currently unexplored traits.
QTL-Seq identifies quantitative trait loci of relative electrical conductivity associated with heat tolerance in bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria)
TLDR
The inheritance of heat tolerance was investigated and three non-synonymous SNPs that were potentially associated with heat tolerance were identified in the qHT2.1 region, which could be candidate markers for marker assisted selection for heat tolerance in bottle gourd.
Construction of a High-Density Genetic Map and Identification of Loci Related to Hollow Stem Trait in Broccoli (Brassic oleracea L. italica)
TLDR
A genetic map was constructed based on the reference genome TO1000 after specific locus amplified fragment (SLAF) sequencing in a double-haploid segregation population of broccoli, and loci controlling hollow stem trait were identified in the genetic map.
Molecular breeding approaches involving physiological and reproductive traits for heat tolerance in food crops
TLDR
An outline of the effects of heat stress and its associated tolerance mechanisms in food crops, along with some physiological, molecular and reproductive characteristics such as ‘stay-green,’ membrane thermostability, canopy temperature depression, metabolites, genes, QTLs, and pollen fertility are presented.
From landrace to modern hybrid broccoli: the genomic and morphological domestication syndrome within a diverse B. oleracea collection
TLDR
This work broadens the understanding of broccoli germplasm, informs conservation efforts, and enables breeding for complex quality traits and regionally adapted cultivars.
Advances in Genetics and Molecular Breeding of Broccoli
TLDR
Genetic engineering by the well-developed Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation in broccoli has contributed to the improvement of quality; postharvest life; glucosinolate and sulforaphane content; and resistance to insects, pathogens and abiotic stresses.
QTL-Seq Identifies QTL for Relative Electrical Conductivity Associated with Heat Tolerance in Bottle Gourd (Lagenaria Siceraria)
TLDR
Three polymorphic SNPs that are involved in pollen sterility, intracellular transport, and signal recognition were validated and exhibited significant marker-trait association that could be used in heat tolerant molecular breeding for bottle gourd.

Heat tolerance and holding ability in broccoli
TLDR
Field studies and heat stress experiments indicate that heat stress may be most critical during the time the immature inflorescence measures 5 to 10 mm in diameter, which corresponds to ≈ 3 weeks before harvest for summer plantings in the northeastern United States.
