Location: Hard Winter Wheat Genetics Research Unit
Project Number: 3020-21000-010-16
Start Date: Sep 01, 2012
End Date: Aug 30, 2017
Mapping populations will be analyzed using the 90K wheat SNP chip and SSR markers and detailed SNP/SSR maps will be constructed and used for mapping of important loci controlling disease resistance, abiotic stress tolerance, grain quality, etc. Low-throughput markers reported for different genes will be converted into a set of high throughput SNP markers by LD analysis of 90K SNP chip. Developed SNPs will be assembled into sets of 30-35 SNP markers to be analyzed in Sequenom MassArray and validated using different mapping populations. Those marker sets will be used for selection of multiple traits in breeding programs.
