Six new Arabidopsis Recombinant Inbred populations developed at the JIC

Six new Recombinant Inbred populations have been produced by single seed descent to F8. These are a joint output of the research programme of the Bancroft group in the Department of Crop Genetics and of the Exploiting Natural Variation in Arabidopsis platform technology of the JIC Genome Laboratory. Vernalization of plants at the seedling stage was conducted throughout, as some of the parent accessions had a strong vernalization requirement for flowering. The parents of the populations were originally selected for contrasting seed lipid characteristics (O'Neill, C.M. et al., 2003). However, as they were also selected as being from diverse geographic origins, the populations are expected to have captured a wide range of genetic diversity for many additional traits.

* Work by Matthieu Simon and Christine Camilleri in the Versailles Biological Resource Centre (CRB) using a set of 384 medium-frequency SNP markers typed on Illumina Veracode has confirmed that JI 240#14 is in fact derived from the NASC Mz-0 (N1382) material. After July-Sept 2011 any reference here to 240#14 (N9623) has been replaced by Mz-0.

Genetic linkage maps have been constructed for the populations using communal markers (Link to Research Group). We strongly encourage contribution of marker data from users of the populations to enable these maps to be further developed.
