Research Project: Mississippi Rice Variety Acceleration Breeding Project Proposal - Phase 2

Location: Genomics and Bioinformatics Research Unit

Project Number: 6402-21310-004-10
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Apr 01, 2010
End Date: Dec 31, 2013

Objective:
Assist Mississippi State Rice breeding efforts through the application of DNA markers and the development of new relevant DNA markers.

Approach:
Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) DNA markers will be used to assist in marker assisted selection of advanced breeding lines. Second generation DNA sequencing will be used to discover relevant Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) markers in Mississippi State University (MSU) produced cultivars.
