The article offers information on the study conducted by the authors related to mapping quantitative trait locus (QTL) for oil traits and eQTLs for oleosin genes in jatropha. It states that the major fatty acids in seed oil of jatropha, a biofuel crop, are palmitic acid (C16:0), stearic acid (C18:0), oleic acid (C18:1) and linoleic acid (C18:2).

    Genomic mapping of complex traits across species demands integrating genetics and statistics. In particular, because it is easily interpreted, the R2 statistic is commonly used in quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping studies to measure the proportion of phenotypic variation explained by...

The screening includes the selection of microsatellite markers close to the deafness genes, which leads to a decrease in the number of markers needed to screen for each...

    The rice cultivar 'Chumroo' is commonly cultivated in the mid- and high-altitude areas of Bhutan. This cultivar has shown durable blast resistance in that area, without evidence of breakdown, for over 20 years. Chumroo was inoculated with 22 blast isolates selected from the race differential...

    Semi-dwarfing genes have been widely used in spring barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.) breeding programs in many parts of the world, but the success in developing barley cultivars with semi-dwarfing genes has been limited in North America. Exploiting new semi-dwarfing genes may help in solving this...

    The componental composition of electrophoretic spectra of gliadin in Triticum spelta L. was studied. By analogy with common wheat T. aestivum L., it was established that genes controlling gliadin components in spelt are also located in short arms of chromosomes of homeological groups 1 and 6....

    Idiopathic scoliosis (IS) is a spine disorder of unknown origin with 1.5-3% prevalence in the general population. Besides the large multifactorial-form sample of IS, there is a good evidence for the existence of a monogenic subgroup in which the disease is inherited in a dominant manner....

    Local adaptations within species are often governed by several interacting genes scattered throughout the genome. Single-locus models of selection cannot explain the maintenance of such complex variation because recombination separates co-adapted alleles. Here we report a previously unrecognized...
