Research Project: Anchoring the Genome Sequence to the Genetic Linkage Map of Blueberry

Location: Genetic Improvement of Fruits and Vegetables

Project Number: 1245-21000-276-02
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 30, 2012
End Date: Sep 29, 2014

Objective:
To anchor the blueberry whole genome sequence to the genetic linkage map of blueberry by mapping SSR markers from scaffolds of the genome assembly.

Approach:
ARS will add SSR markers, developed from the largest scaffolds of the current whole genome assembly provided by the collaborator, to the genetic linkage map of blueberry. ARS will attempt to map two SSRs per scaffold whenever possible, one from each end to orient the scaffold on the map.
