Conventional breeding procedures will be predominantly employed. New high-protein lines (e.g. SD00-1501, M02-375017, M03-184050, M03-184083, E07130-T, E07147-T, etc.) and low phytate lines (e.g. M03-917303, M03-809146, etc.) will be crossed to high-yielding lines. SSD will used to advance generations and individual selection will also be conducted in early generations for major agronomic characters or resistance in some cases. Protein analysis will be performed by NIR and NMR. SSR markers and RIL population will be used for QTL mapping.
