Early breeding reduced harmful mutations in sorghum

2021-01-21 16:15:39 UTC

Early breeding reduced harmful mutations in sorghumWhen humans first domesticated maize some 9,000 years ago, those early breeding efforts led to an increase in harmful mutations to the crop's genome compared to their wild relatives, which more recent modern breeding has helped to correct.
