Abstract

Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for drought tolerance (DT) can be readily identified in available databases and in this paper, these QTLs were summarized in the form of a consensus map. An in silico strategy was then deployed to mine for candidate genes associated with DT QTLs using rice dbEST and rice genome databases. DT QTLs on rice chromosomes 1, 2, 4, 8, and 9 were selected to test the method. The result showed candidate genes associated with DT could be readily identified.
