Abstract :

For efficient spinning and superior fabric production, long fiber length is a desired trait for cotton production. To unveil the molecular basis of the cotton fiber length regulation, a short fiber mutant, Ligon lintless-1 (Li.sub.1 ), is selected to compare with its corresponding wild type (WT). Li.sub.1 is a monogenic dominant cotton mutant causing extremely short fibers (
