Genetic Determinants of Variability in Yield in Sorghum Lines When Exposed to Low severity Nitrogen Deficit Stress

Grzybowski et al. employed a global, genetically diverse sorghum association panel to explore the variability in metabolic, physiological, and morphological responses to nitrogen deficits and the effect on yield.

Stable Protein, Starch and Amylose QTLs Identified for SC35 × RTx430 Sorghum Population

Lectin Influences on Abiotic Stress Resistance in Grain and Sweet Sorghum

When comparing grain to sweet sorghum lines, Osman et al. identified differences in the lectin homologs in the presence/absence of certain other joint domains.They also identified significant overrepresentation of lectins in certain QTLs related to cold and drought tolerance.
