The Sorghum QTL Atlas: A powerful tool for trait dissection, comparative genomics and crop improvement

The Sorghum QTL Atlas is a research platform comprising data from over 150 QTL and GWAS studies for 223 unique traits classified into seven broad categories: leaf, maturity, panicle, abiotic resistance, biotic resistance, stem composition, and stem morphology. Data can be queried by trait, genomic or syntenic location, study, or various study details.
