CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF AGROSTIS
Floral and Nursery Plants Research Unit
Project Number: 8020-21000-065-01
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Apr 20, 2010
End Date: Sep 30, 2013
We will acquire the basic knowledge of Agrostis genome relationships based on chromosome pairing and banding studies to differentiate the genomes of cultivated members of this genus. This information will be used by ARS to develop through classical breeding Agrostis germplasm with enhanced sustainability. The Cooperator will evaluate selections for possible germplasm release.
Investigate the genome pairing and banding of cultivated Agrostis species.
