Trait Study
Red coleoptile, Nelson95
Anthocyanin pigmentation
ReferenceNelson JC et al. (1995) Molecular mapping of wheat. Major genes and rearrangements in homoeologous groups 4, 5, and 7 Genetics 141:721-731.
Seedling coleoptile color was scored in the Synthetic x Opata RI population.
Coleoptile color was rated on a scale of 0 (green) to 5 (relatively darkest red-purple coloring) in 5-day-old seedlings grown in Petri dishes under fluorescent light in a growth chamber at around 20oC.
Growth chamber Synthetic/Opata, Ithaca
