Camelina Breeding -

Genetic mapping of agronomic traits in false flax (Camelina sativa subsp. sativa) – A. Gehringer, W. Friedt, W. Lühs, and R.J. Snowdon – Genome – 2006

Summary: In this study, a genetic map for C. sativa was constructed, using amplified fragment length polymorphism markers, in a population of recombinant inbred lines. The map was used to localize quantitative trait loci for agronomic characteristics, such as seed yield, oil content, 1000-seed weight, and plant height. The results represent a starting point for future marker-assisted breeding. Link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17426770
