Often used as a proxy for the transition to reproduction, flowering time (FT) is an integrative trait of two successive biological processes, bolting time (BT) and the interval between bolting and flowering time (INT). In this study, we aimed to identify candidate genes associated with these composite traits in using a field experiment. Genome-wide association (GWA) mapping was performed on BT, INT and FT based on a sample of 179 worldwide natural accessions genotyped for 216,509 SNPs. Read More
