Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Permanent mapping populations (ones capable of replicating themselves through seed) provide an efficient means for identifying and studying genes for agronomic traits. With them, a single accession of costly molecular data can then be used to locate and study the genes responsible for a multitude of characters. A permanent rice mapping population developed through joint USDA-ARS and TAES efforts is new being used by scientists in the US and worldwide.
