- Identification of candidate genes associated with cell wall digestibility and eQTL (expression quantitative trait loci) analysis in a Flint x Flint maize recombinant inbred line populationChun Shi
Technical University of Munich, Am Hochanger 2, 85350 Freising, Germany
BMC Genomics 8:22. 2007..Cell-wall digestibility is the major target for improving the feeding value of forage maize. An understanding of the molecular basis for cell-wall digestibility is crucial towards breeding of highly digestible maize...
