The utilization of heterosis has greatly increased the yield of crops. It is a milestone event in the history of plant breeding and has made a great contribution to solving the food crisis. Chinese cabbage is the vegetable crop with the largest cultivation area in my country, and it is the main dish of urban and rural residents. High-yield, high-quality, and disease resistance have always been important target traits for breeding. Chinese cabbage is a typical cross-pollinated crop, and its heterosis is very significant. Analyzing the molecular basis of the formation of Chinese cabbage heterosis has important reference value for the molecular improvement of Chinese cabbage yield and stress resistance.
