Start Date: Oct 01, 2013
End Date: Aug 27, 2015
Field, greenhouse, and growth chamber experiments in diverse environments will be used to assess segregation for days-to-flower and core-length in at least two recombinant inbred line (RIL) populations. Segregation data will be used with existing genetic maps for these RIL populations to detect QTL and QTL x environmental interactions. Segregation in new populations will be evaluated, and populations with interesting segregation will be genotyped with molecular markers for eventual QTL analysis.
