Meta-analysis of QTL reveals the genetic control of yield-related traits and seed protein content in pea

Abstract : Pea is one of the most important grain legume crops in temperate regions worldwide. Improving pea yield is a critical breeding target. Nine inter-connected pea recombinant inbred line populations were evaluated in nine environments at INRAE Dijon, France and genotyped using the GenoPea 13.2 K SNP array. Each population has been evaluated in two to four environments. A multi-population Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) analysis for seed weight per plant (SW), seed number per plant (SN), thousand seed weight (TSW) and seed protein content (SPC) was done. QTL were then projected on the multi-population consensus map and a meta-analysis of QTL was performed. This analysis identified 17 QTL for SW, 16 QTL for SN, 35 QTL for TSW and 21 QTL for SPC, shedding light on trait relationships. These QTL were resolved into 27 metaQTL. Some of them showed small confidence intervals of less than 2 cM encompassing less than one hundred underlying candidate genes. The precision of metaQTL and the potential candidate genes reported in this study enable their use for marker-assisted selection and provide a foundation towards map-based identification of causal polymorphisms.
