Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared (ATR FT-IR) spectroscopy was used to compare the secondary cell wall (SCW) biosynthesis between two sets of cotton near isogenic lines (NILs). Previously developed simple algorithmic analyses were applied to acquire the fiber crystallinity and maturity development information on these fibers. Initial results revealed the difference in fiber crystallinity and maturity development between NILs (TM-1 vs. im), not between NILs (MD52ne vs. MD90ne).
