Key message

We identify the largest amount of QTLs for cold tolerance in maize; mainly associated with photosynthetic efficiency, which opens new possibilities for genomic selection for cold tolerance in maize.


Breeding for cold tolerance in maize is an important objective in temperate areas. The objective was to carry out a highly efficient study of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for cold tolerance in maize. We evaluated 406 recombinant inbred lines from a multi-parent advanced generation intercross (MAGIC) population in a growth chamber under cold and control conditions, and in the field at early and normal sowing. We recorded cold tolerance-related traits, including the number of days from sowing to emergence, chlorophyll content and maximum quantum efficiency of photosystem II (Fv/Fm). Association mapping was based on genotyping with near one million single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers. We found 858 SNPs significantly associated with all traits, most of them under cold conditions and early sowing. Most QTLs were associated with chlorophyll and Fv/Fm. Many candidate genes coincided between the current research and previous reports. These results suggest that (1) the MAGIC population is an efficient tool for identifying QTLs for cold tolerance; (2) most QTLs for cold tolerance were associated with Fv/Fm; (3) most of these QTLs were located in specific genomic regions, particularly bin 10.04; (4) the current study allows genetically improving cold tolerance with genome-wide selection.
