Analysis of diversity and linkage disequilibrium mapping of agronomic traits on B-genome of wheat

Association mapping is an efficient method to test the association between molecular markers and quantitative trait loci (QTL) based on linkage disequilibrium (LD). In this study, 13 agronomic traits of 109 wheat accessions were evaluated at Tai’an of China in 2006 – 2010. Genetic diversity,
population structure, and LD were investigated using Diversity Array Technology (DArT) markers
