DescriptionThe amino acid content in maize kernels is critically important for human and animal nutrition. However, the genetic basis underpinning amino acids is not fully understood. We are performing Genome Wide Association Studies and Genomic prediction in a panel of several thousand maize plants genotyped at tens of millions of loci to finely dissect amino acid traits in maize.
