Research Project: Use of Molecular Markers to Determine Genetic Relationships of Citrus and Citrus Relatives

Location: National Clonal Germplasm Repository for Citrus & Dates

Project Number: 5310-21000-010-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 03, 2008
End Date: Jul 02, 2013

Objective:
Provide expertise in the area of genetic analysis of germplasm of citrus, citrus relatives, and date palm. This supports the mission to collect, evaluate, and distribute germplasm of citrus, citrus relatives, and date palm.

Approach:
Use molecular markers and gene sequence information to characterize citrus, citrus relatives, and date palm accessions to help identify redundancies and gaps in the collection, screen potential new accessions, and identify important regulatory genes of metabolic pathways.
