Goals of the USDA Regional Small Grain Genotyping Laboratories

1) Develop new molecular marker technologies;  2) Implement effective strategies for their application in breeding for small grain crops;  3) Provide breeders the access to sophisticated and state-of-the-art molecular technologies;  4) Maximize the efficiency of small grain breeding programs to speed up the process of new cultivar release.

Crops include soft red and white winter wheat, specialty-purpose wheat, winter barley and winter oats.

We focus on the following main traits for molecular genotyping:  1) Quality traits related to protein functionality, sprouting resistance, milling and baking quality in wheat;  2)  Resistance to production risks, including resistance to powdery mildew, Hessian fly, Septoria tritici and Stagonospora nordorum, Fusarium head blight, and leaf, stem and stripe rust in wheat; resistance to crown rust and winter injury in oats; and, resistance to barley yellow dwarf virus in wheat and oats.
