Identification of candidate genes putatively underlying heading date in oats. Candidate gene loci were identified using BLAST searches against the A. atlantica genome assembly using maker sequences associated with heading date QTLs located on the homoeologous linkage groups a Mrg12 and b Mrg02 (Bekele et al. [29]). Markers from both QTLs mapped to the same physical position on chromosome AA1, within an interval containing an FT-like protein (HD3A), suggesting that heading date in modern oat is controlled by two functional homoeologs of the flowering time gene
