    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features 

Record number 504649
Title Molecular mapping and cloning of genes and QTLs in Brassica rapa
Author(s) Bonnema, Guusje
Source In: The Brassica rapa Genome Springer (Compendium of plant genomes ) - ISBN 9783662479001 - p. 131 - 144.
Department(s) Laboratory of Plant Breeding
Publication type Peer reviewed book chapter
Publication year 2015

In this chapter an overview is given of QTL studies performed in the species Brassica rapa. First we provide an overview of the types of molecular markers that have been used in time, and the genetic maps that have been constructed from a broad range of populations, both in terms of population type and morphotypes used for the crosses. Since the publication of the B. rapa genome sequence, numbers of molecular markers have increased exponentially. Second, an overview is given of QTL studies published in the last few years, and thereafter the QTL studies that resulted in cloning of the causal genes are presented. A brief overview is given of association mapping studies performed in B. rapa, and the chapter is concluded with proposed strategies to identify genes underlying both qualitative and quantitative traits.
