Project Number: 3607-21000-012-04
Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Sep 30, 2012
To develop SNP markers for soybean aphid resistance genes for marker assisted breeding for Rag2, Rag3, and Rag4 genes: SNP markers will be identified in the genomic regions of the aphid resistance genes using appropriate RIL mapping populations (already in hand) and near isogenic lines. The Solexa sequencing and Illumina genotyping platforms will be used for this objective/strategy.
