Heritability and genetic advance in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)


  • Alireza Zebarjadi
  • Zeinab Chaghakaboodi .

The present study was carried out to estimate genetic variability parameters for some traits such as pods per plant, cell membrane stability, one thousand kernel weight, flowering period, grain filling period, chlorophyll content, relative water content, leaf excised water content, seed per pod and pod length, in 16 winter rapeseed genotypes. Statistical analysis showed significant differences between the tested genotypes. Genotypic and phenotypic coefficients of variations were high for yield, pods per plant and cell membrane stability. Heritability estimates were high for pods per plant, cell membrane stability, one thousand kernel weight and flowering period. A high genetic gain was observed for pods per plant and cell membrane stability. Correlation analysis showed a significant and negative relationship between the flowering and grain filling period (-0.883) and between cell membrane stability and chlorophyll content (SPAD) (-0.587). A positive and significant correlation was found between the grain yield and relative water content (0.603).

Genetic Map Construction and Sclerotinia Resistance QTLs Identification in Rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)

Sclerotinia stem rot is one of the most devastating diseases of rapeseed in China, which causes yield loss ranging from 10 to 80%. The objective of this study was to detect the QTLs associated with this disease. A partial sclerotinia resistance rapeseed line M083 was crossed with a sensitive one APL01, and the BC1F1 derived from this cross was used as a mapping population. The 182 lines of BC1F...

Unraveling the Genetic Basis of Seed Tocopherol Content and Composition in Rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)

BACKGROUND Tocopherols are important antioxidants in vegetable oils; when present as vitamin E, tocopherols are an essential nutrient for humans and livestock. Rapeseed (Brassica napus L, AACC, 2 n = 38) is one of the most important oil crops and a major source of tocopherols. Although the tocopherol biosynthetic pathway has been well elucidated in the model photosynthetic organisms Arabidopsis...

Diversity Array Technology Markers: Genetic Diversity Analyses and Linkage Map Construction in Rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)

We developed Diversity Array Technology (DArT) markers for application in genetic studies of Brassica napus and other Brassica species with A or C genomes. Genomic representation from 107 diverse genotypes of B. napus L. var. oleifera (rapeseed, AACC genomes) and B. rapa (AA genome) was used to develop a DArT array comprising 11 520 clones generated using PstI/BanII and PstI/BstN1 complexity re...

Study of Genetic Variation and Drought Tolerance in Commercial Rapeseed (Brassica napus L.) Cultivars

In order to identify drought stress tolerance in rapeseed, nine commercial rapeseed cultivars (Opera, Karaj1, Karaj2, Karaj3, Zarfam, Okapi, Talayeh, Licord and Modena) were evaluated under two conditions (normal and drought stress) in Kangavar region in the west Iran in 2014-2015 growing season. This research was carried out in a split plot experiment based on completely randomized design in f...

Genome-wide association study reveals the genetic architecture of flowering time in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)

Flowering time adaptation is a major breeding goal in the allopolyploid species Brassica napus. To investigate the genetic architecture of flowering time, a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of flowering time was conducted with a diversity panel comprising 523 B. napus cultivars and inbred lines grown in eight different environments. Genotyping was performed with a Brassica 60K Illumina Infi...

Genome-Wide Association Mapping Reveals the Genetic Control Underlying Branch Angle in Rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)

Plant architecture is vital not only for crop yield, but also for field management, such as mechanical harvesting. The branch angle is one of the key factors determining plant architecture. With the aim of revealing the genetic control underlying branch angle in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.), the positional variation of branch angles on individual plants was evaluated, and the branch angle incre...
