Research Project: Genetic Analysis of Physiological Traits Conferring Heat and Drought Tolerance in Cotton Project Number: 5347-21000-011-05
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Jan 01, 2010
End Date: Dec 31, 2012

Objective:
To study genetic variation for physiological stress responses in cotton and its relation to productivity and fiber quality under high temperature and water-limited conditions.

Approach:
We plan to employ QTL analysis to study the genetic architecture of heat and drought tolerance as well as fiber quality traits in a biparental upland cotton population cultivated under well-watered and water-limited conditions.
