Research Project: Oat SNP Dev and Identification of Loci Affecting Key Traits in N American Oat Germplasm Using Assoc Genitics; Agron & Quality Testing

Location: Small Grains and Potato Germplasm Research

Project Number: 5366-21000-028-27
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Oct 25, 2010
End Date: Mar 31, 2013

Objective:
Conduct a two year multi-location association mapping study to develop marker-trait associations to facilitate the development of new oat varieties with superior agronomics and milling quality.

Approach:
Single row plots for all 685 association lines will be grown in an augmented design. Agronomic traits evaluated prior to harvest will include; 1) heading date, 2) plant height, 3) lodging, and 4) maturity. Four hundred grams of seed will be harvested and sent to Aberdeen, ID for quality analysis including: 1) groat percentage, 2) percentage plump kernels, 3) 1000 kernel weight, 4) groat plumpness, 5) groat color, and 6) percentage broken groats using standardized methods. All data will be collected and analyzed for marker trait associations. Seed will also be tested for tocopherol, total dietary fiber, beta glucan, and avenanthramides. Documents Grant with NDSU.
