Responses to divergent selection for cob color in maize

  title={Responses to divergent selection for cob color in maize},
  author={Pierangelo Landi and Maria Angela Can{\`e} and Elisabetta Frascaroli},
Previous studies showed that in materials derived from maize (Zea mays L.) single cross A632 × Mu195 there is association between agronomic traits and cob color (affected by P1 gene). Objectives of this study were to evaluate the responses to divergent selection for cob color in F2-Syn 0 (obtained by selfing A632 × Mu195), estimate the genetic parameters of the involved putative quantitative trait loci (QTL), and evaluate the responses to divergent selection for cob color in A632 and Mu195… CONTINUE READING
