    The inheritance of yield-related traits in rapeseed ( Brassica napus) is poorly understood, and the investigations on mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for such traits are only few. QTL related to six traits were mapped which include plant height (PH), height of lowest primary effective...

    Background: The enormous potential of natural variation for the functional characterization of genes has been neglected for a long time. Only since recently, functional geneticists are starting to account for natural variation in their analyses. With the new sequencing technologies it has become...

    Multiparental populations are of considerable interest in high-density genetic mapping due to their increased levels of polymorphism and recombination relative to biparental populations. However, errors in map construction can have significant impact on QTL discovery in later stages of analysis,...
