Facile mutant identification via a single parental backcross method and application of whole genome sequencing based mapping pipelines

Allen, Robert S.; Nakasugi, Kenlee; Doran, Rachel L.; Millar, Anthony A.; Waterhouse, Peter M.


Forward genetic screens have identified numerous genes involved in development and metabolism, and remain a cornerstone of biological research. However, to locate a causal mutation, the practice of crossing to a polymorphic background to generate a mapping population can be problematic if the mutant phenotype is difficult to recognize in the hybrid F2 progeny, or dependent on parental specific traits. Here in a screen for leaf hyponasty mutants, we have performed a single backcross of an Ethane...[Show more]
