Multi-parental maize populations from the PLANT-KBBE CornFed project

Two panels of DH populations were established in the Plant-KBBE project CornFed: 11 DH populations for European Dent and 13 DH populations for European Flint maize. Each of the two panels consists of a central line (or common parent) that was crossed to founder lines that represent important and diverse breeding lines of the European maize germplasm. For a detailed description of this biological resource see Bauer et al. 2013.
