- Major regulatory genes in maize contribute to standing variation in teosinte (Zea mays ssp. parviglumis)Allison Weber
Laboratory of Genetics, University of Wisconsin, Madison 53706, USA
Genetics 177:2349-59. 2007..Our data suggest that major regulatory genes in maize do play a role in the natural variation for complex traits in teosinte and that some of the minor variants we identified may have been targets of selection during domestication...
- The role of regulatory genes during maize domestication: evidence from nucleotide polymorphism and gene expressionQiong Zhao
Laboratory of Genetics, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin 53706, USA
Genetics 178:2133-43. 2008..We also analyzed expression profiles of genes in distinct maize tissues and observed that domestication genes are expressed on average at a significantly higher level than neutral genes in reproductive organs, including kernels...
