Identification of sequence-related amplified polymorphism markers linked to the red leaf trait in ornamental kale (Brassica oleracea L. var. acephala)

Y. S. Wang, Liu, Z. Y., Li, Y. F., Zhang, Y., Yang, X. F., and Feng, H., Identification of sequence-related amplified polymorphism markers linked to the red leaf trait in ornamental kale (Brassica oleracea L. var. acephala), vol. 12, pp. 870-877, 2013.

Artistic diversiform leaf color is an important agronomic trait that affects the market value of ornamental kale. In the present study, genetic analysis showed that a single-dominant gene, Re (red leaf), determines the red leaf trait in ornamental kale. An F2 population consisting of 500 individuals from the cross of a red leaf double-haploid line ‘D05’ with a white leaf double-haploid line ‘D10’ was analyzed for the red leaf trait.
