The article presents information on a study conducted in botany, in which a consensus genetic map in melon was constructed by using highly transferable anchor markers that have broad potential use for mapping and comparative quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis. Under the International Cucurbit Genomics Initiative, integrated genetic map was constructed by merging data from eight independent mapping experiments using a genetically diverse array of parental lines.

    Background: Vegetables of the genus Allium are widely consumed but remain poorly understood genetically. Genetic mapping has been conducted in intraspecific crosses of onion (Allium cepa L.), A. fistulosum and interspecific crosses between A. roylei and these two species, but it has not been...

    Diversity array technology (DArT) markers are largely used for mapping, genetic diversity, and association mapping studies. For years, they have been used as anonymous genomic markers, as their sequences were not known. As the sequences of 2,000 wheat DArT clones are now available, this study...

    We report the discovery and validation of a set of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) between the reference Neurospora crassa strain Oak Ridge and the Mauriceville strain (FGSC 2555), of sufficient density to allow fine mapping of most loci. Sequencing of Mauriceville cDNAs and alignment to...

    Rice protein content (RPC) and rice fat content (RFC) are two important components of rice nutritional quality. In order to examine the genetic basis of these traits, a doubled haploid (DH) population and an RFLP linkage map consisting of 232 marker loci were used to search QTLs for the traits...
