180 RILs (recombinant inbred lines) segregating for protein, oil, and fatty acids were produced from a cross between TN12-4098 and TN13-4303. These lines were grown across three locations spread horizontally across Tennessee: Research Education Center at Milan (RECM), Highland Rim Research and Education Center (HRREC), and East Tennessee Research and Education Center (ETREC) in 2018 and 2019. 21 quantitative trait loci (QTLs) spanning 7 chromosomes were found using WinQTLCart2.5.
