Research Project: MOLECULAR DISSECTION OF NEW SOYBEAN APHID RESISTANT GENES AND SNP MARKERS FOR MARKER ASSISTED BREEDING - OSU

Location: Corn, Soybean and Wheat Quality Research Unit

Project Number: 3607-21000-012-07
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
Develop SNP markers for soybean aphid resistance genes for marker assisted breeding for the Rag2 gene.

Approach:
SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) markers will be identified in the genomic regions of the aphid resistance genes using appropriate RIL mapping populations and near isogenic lines. The Solexa sequencing and Illumina and other genotyping platforms will be used for mapping the SNPs.
