Research Project: ASSOCIATION GENETICS TO IDENTIFY AND ENHANCE OAT AND BARLEY GERMPLASM FOR NUTRITIONAL FUNCTION

Location: Corn Insects and Crop Genetics Research

2008 Annual Report


1a.Objectives (from AD-416)
Identify genes controlling beta glucan content in oat.


1b.Approach (from AD-416)
Association mapping in elite varieties.


3.Progress Report

This is the first year of this project. We isolated DNA from more than 200 oat lines from public breeding programs in the U.S. and Canada and genotyped these lines using RAPD markers. These lines will be produced in the field this year and evaluated for beta glucan content.
