Genome-Wide Association Mapping in Diverse Sorghum Germplasms Unveils Novel Genetic Loci for Agronomic, Root, and Stomatal Traits

Pilot-scale genome-wide association mapping in diverse sorghum germplasms uncovered 42 significant quantitative trait nucleotides (QTNs), revealing novel candidate genes influencing major agronomic, root, and stomatal traits such as plant height, dry biomass, and plant yield.

Unlocking Sorghum’s Defense Arsenal: Major Breakthrough in Anthracnose Resistance

Genetic architecture of anthracnose resistance genes (ARG4 and ARG5) shown to confer resistance in SAP135 and P9830. Susceptible varieties lack these genes through presence-absence variation and recessive alleles.

Exploring Sorghum bicolor’s MYB Gene Family: Unveiling the Secrets of SbMYBAS1 in Tackling Salt Stress

The study delves into the sorghum MYB gene family, underscoring the key role of SbMYBAS1 in negatively regulating salt tolerance through reduced ROS scavenging ability and K+ content.
