The image of a cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) boll. The degree of cotton fiber wall thickness determines the value of raw cotton and the quality of the produced yarn. Mapping-by-sequencing identified a 22-bp deletion in a pentatricopeptide repeat gene that is linked to the thin fiber cell wall phenotype of the immature fiber (im) cotton mutant.
