- ... Bolting is an important agronomic trait in Brassica rapa crops due to its effect on yield and quality. Bolting is a complicated trait regulated by multiple genes that is highly influenced by the environment. Defining the chromosomal region(s) involved and clarifying the genetic interactions is important for improving the effectiveness of marker-assisted selection. Our objectives were to map quanti ...

- ... Leaves are vital plant organs, and a high level of variation in leaf shape, including the leaf lobes, is present in Brassica rapa. Based on a previously-constructed linkage map, QTL analysis of the leaf lobes was performed using the scores from an F₂ population during the spring of 2010, and scores from an F₂:₃ family in the autumn of 2010, respectively. A total of nine QTLs were found to affect l ...
