A haplotype map of foxtail millet (Setaria italica) constructed by Chinese scientist has been released


Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and other eight cooperative institutes have completed the construction of the first generation haplotype map and genome-wide association analysis (GWAS) of forty-seven major agronomic traits of foxtail millet, which is thought to be a putative model species for the panicoid grasses including maize, sorghum and other biofuel crops. The result was published by Nature Genetics on 24 June 2013, marking a firm foundation pushing Setaria as a model and promoting foxtail millet breeding to new era.
