Location: Hard Winter Wheat Genetics Research Unit
Project Number: 5430-21000-010-01
Start Date: Sep 10, 2008
End Date: Sep 09, 2013
Use of high throughput molecular marker technologies to identify and isolate desirable genes/QTL from wheat germplasm materials collected from Asia and the southern Great Plains of the USA and to transfer and pyramid these QTL into adapted U.S. hard winter wheat cultivars using marker-assisted backcross to develop hard winter wheat cultivar/germplasm with improved resistance.
