February 2017: Seed Dormancy Data from Chao et al. 2015

QTL and phenotypic data from the Chao et al. 2015 study of pre-harvest sprouting in durum wheat are now available at GrainGenes. Chao et al. developed a population from a cross between Langdon and a deletion line, LDN(521-2B), and used it to identify two QTLs on chromosome 2B that are associated with seed dormancy. Phenotype data for germination index and germination rate, a genetic map of chromosome 2B, and information on the QTLs are curated into GrainGenes; the data can be reached here.
