Research Project: Corn Seed Chipping for Rapid DNA Extraction

Location: Plant Science Research

Project Number: 6645-21220-015-01
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 01, 2009
End Date: Apr 30, 2014

Objective:
Identify recombinant progeny for fine-mapping of genome regions for identifying flowering time genes.

Approach:
Transfer kernel samples from 200 ears of ARS corn lines NIL-0028 x E73 F2 to cooperator for kernel chipping utilizing specialized equipment for automated seed chipping. Cooperator will provide resulting chipped kernels and seed chips back to ARS for extracting DNA, genotyping with SNP markers and identifying recombinant progeny.
