Abstract:

 Effective silique number on main inflorescence is an important factor on rapeseed (Brassica napus L.) yield. Doubled haploids (DH) derived from ZY036 and 51070 were used to develop genetic markers on effective silique number. DH population was planted for 3 years at 4 locations as Wuhan-2010, Yangluo-2011, Qinghai-2011, Yangluo-2012 and Xiangyang-2012 respectively. In the 5 field trials, QTLs for the effective silique number on main inflorescence were identified using WinQTL Cartographer 2.5 software. 10 QTLs were found. Their phenotypic variation,LOD value and additive effect ranged from 9.33% to 31.60%,2.51 to 5.37 and 2.71 to 8.09 respectively. Four QTLs on chromosomes A1, A5, C1 and C9 were co-localized by 2 trials. In the QTL regions, 16 linkage markers were obtained, and 8 of 16 markers had less than 1cM distance from the peak of the QTLs.
