Abstract

Key message A region containing three genes on chromosome 1 of indica rice was associated with cold tolerance at the bud burst stage; these results may be useful for breeding cold-tolerant lines. Abstract Low temperature at the bud burst stage is one of the major abiotic stresses limiting rice growth, especially in regions where rice seeds are sown directly. In this study, we investigated cold tolerance of rice at the bud burst stage and conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) based on the 5K rice array of 249 indica rice varieties widely distributed in China. We improved the method to assess cold tolerance at the bud burst stage in indica rice, and used severity of damage (SD) and seed survival rate (SR) as the cold-tolerant indices. Population structure analysis demonstrated that the Chinese indica panel was divided into three subgroups. In total, 47 significant single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci associated with SD and SR, were detected by association mapping based on mixed linear model. Because some loci overlapped between SD and SR, the loci contained 13 genome intervals and most of them have been reported previously.
