Molecular mapping of QTLs associated with heat tolerance in chickpea
A genetic map spanning 529.11 cM and comprising 271 genotyping by sequencing (GBS) based single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers was constructed. Composite interval mapping (CIM) analysis revealed two consistent genomic regions harbouring eight QTLs on CaLG05 and CaLG06. Four major QTLs for number of filled pods, number of seeds, grain yield and % pod setting, located in the CaLG05, were found to have cumulative phenotypic variation of above 50%.
