Simplifying SNP discovery in the cotton genome

1 abril 2015

Researchers have developed a strategy that simplifies the discovery of useful single-nucleotide polymorphisms within the complex cotton genome. This method will be useful for marker-assisted selection, linkage and QTL mapping, and genetic diversity studies. It has the added benefit of being applicable to other economically important allotetraploid species, including the brassicas, and can be extended to species that do not currently have a reference genome.
