Data from: Selection signatures underlying dramatic male inflorescence transformation during modern hybrid maize breeding

Joseph L. Gage, Michael R. White, Jode W. Edwards, Shawn Kaeppler & Natalia De Leon
Inflorescence capacity plays a crucial role in reproductive fitness in plants, and in production of hybrid crops. Maize is a monoecious species bearing separate male and female flowers (tassel and ear, respectively). The switch from open-pollinated populations of maize to hybrid-based breeding schemes in the early 20th century was accompanied by a dramatic reduction in tassel size, and the trend has continued with modern breeding over the recent decades. The goal of this study was...
