Genome-wide association study (GWAS) for root traits as an a
Transcript of Genome-wide association study (GWAS) for root traits as an a
Root traits in maize DH lines
(Volume, length, Surface Area, Dry weight)
Summary and conclusion
GWAS was performed for root length, root surface area, root dry weight, and root volume on 317 maize accessions and 37,861 SNP markers using TASSEL software.
Genome-wide association study (GWAS) for root traits as an avenue to increase nitrogen use efficiency in maize (
317 maize doubled haploid lines (crosses between exotic landraces and 2 maize inbred lines (PHB47 and PHZ51)
Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS)
Used to find genetic factors that contribute for an observable trait
Discover SNP markers responsible for root dry weight, total root length, root surface area, and root volume in maize.
Uses Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) markers, which are abundant and can be found across the genome
Recent tool in plant and animal breeding programs for predicting an important trait in the offspring more accurately
important role in water and nutrient acquisition
They were evaluated for root traits and genotyped using more than 600,000 SNPs
(after filtering = 37831 SNPs)
Association Analysis (GLM and
Genomic Selection (Ridge Regression)
Linkage Disequilibrium Analysis
Missing Data Imputation (genotype and phenotype)
SNP Extraction, filtering, numericalization, formatting

The association between the SNP marker S7_165574687 and root surface area was significant with a
–log10p = 5.19 .
The strongest associated SNPs for the traits studied are all found in Chromosome 7.
