From: Multi-parent advanced generation inter-cross (MAGIC) populations in rice: progress and potential for genetics research and breeding

Figure 1

Crossing schemes to produce four multi-parent advanced generation inter-cross (MAGIC) populations: a) Development of the indica MAGIC population. The same scheme was used for the development of the japonica MAGIC population b) Development of the MAGIC plus and global MAGIC populations. The global population includes eight indica and eight japonica founder lines, which carry QTLs conferring tolerance of biotic and abiotic stresses. A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H – represent the 8 indica parents; I, J, K, L, M, N, O and P – represent the 8 japonica parents; Gen- generation; SSDM – single seed descent method ,S – selfing.
