Elite alleles associated with chlorophyll content of flag leaf in a natural population of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) consisting of 262 accessions were measured at flowering and grain-filling stages under both rainfed and well-watered conditions in two experimental locations in Beijing, China. A total of 169 SSR markers distributed on the 21 chromosomes of wheat were employed to detect the genetic diversity and genetic structure of the population. Association analysis between SSR loci and chlorophyll content trait was performed using TASSEL MLM (mixed linear model) program.
