Genetic Diversity, Population Structure, and Marker-Trait Association for Drought Tolerance in US Rice Germplasm.
Friday, 2019/12/13 | 08:06:01

Plants (Basel). 2019 Nov 21;8(12). pii: E530. doi: 10.3390/plants8120530.


Drought is a major constraint in some rice-growing areas of the United States. Its impact is most severe at the reproductive stage resulting in low grain yield. Therefore, assessment of genetic and phenotypic variation for drought tolerance in US rice germplasm is necessary to accelerate the breeding effort. Evaluation of 205 US rice genotypes for drought tolerance at the reproductive stage revealed tolerant response in rice genotypes Bengal, Jupiter, Cypress, Jazzman, Caffey, and Trenasse. Harvest index and fresh shoot weight were identified as important traits to explain the majority of variability among the genotypes under drought tolerance. Genotyping with 80 SSR markers indicated a low level of genetic diversity in US germplasm. Population structure analysis grouped the genotypes into eight clusters. The genotypes from California, Louisiana, and Arkansas formed distinct subgroups. Texas genotypes were similar to those from Louisiana and Arkansas. Marker-trait association analysis showed significant association of RM570 and RM351 with grain yield, spikelet fertility, and harvest index whereas shoot dry weight showed association with RM302 and RM461. The drought-tolerant genotypes identified in this study and the SSR markers associated with drought tolerance attributes will be helpful for development of improved drought-tolerant rice varieties through marker assisted selection.

Figure 1: Principal component analysis (PCA) plot of various agronomic traits, yield, and yield-related traits in the US rice genotypes. (a) Scatter plot of the various rice genotypes represented in two major principal component axes. No sufficient clustering was observed except the California genotypes in the third quadrant. (b) Grouping of the variables in two principal components. PC1 represented yield-related traits and PC2 represented the agronomic traits.
