Research Project: Enhancement of Oat Germplasm for Resistance/tolerance to Barley and Cereal Yellow Dwarf Virus Utilizing Marker-Assisted-Selection Breeding

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 3602-21220-013-07
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 06, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2015

Objective:
Introgress BYDV tolerance and resistance genes into oat genetic backgrounds and develop DNA markers linked to these tolerance/resistance loci to facilitate oat breeding.

Approach:
This project will employ standard breeding practices, and molecular marker technology to develop oat lines with enhanced resistance/tolerance to BYDV.
