Construction of physical maps for the sex-specific regions of papaya sex chromosomes
AbstractBackgroundPapaya is a major fruit crop in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. It is trioecious with three sex forms: male, female, and hermaphrodite. Sex determination is controlled by a pair of nascent sex ...
A draft physical map of a D-genome cotton species (Gossypium raimondii)
Abstract Background Genetically anchored physical maps of large eukaryotic genomes have proven useful both for their intrinsic merit and as an adjunct to genome sequencing. Cultivated tetraploid cottons, Gossypium ...
Association analysis of photoperiodic flowering time genes in West and Central African sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]
Abstract Background Photoperiod-sensitive flowering is a key adaptive trait for sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) in West and Central Africa. In this study we performed an association analysis to investigate the effect of ...
Different patterns of gene structure divergence following gene duplication in Arabidopsis
Abstract Background Divergence in gene structure following gene duplication is not well understood. Gene duplication can occur via whole-genome duplication (WGD) and single-gene duplications ...
Transcriptome and methylome profiling reveals relics of genome dominance in the mesopolyploid Brassica oleracea
Abstract Background Brassica oleracea is a valuable vegetable species that has contributed to human health and nutrition for hundreds of years and comprises multiple distinct cultivar ...
