Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9842870A1] A method for breeding with high oil corn germplasm is disclosed. The method involves the use of genetic markers associated with trait loci controlling kernel oil concentration. These genetic markers are used to select for kernel oil concentration in breeding populations. Also disclosed is a method for selecting complementary oil parent sources using genetic markers, which are likely to produce superior offspring. Also disclosed are the trait loci controlling corn kernel oil concentration.
