We will significantly increase the numbers of robust single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and develop a high through-put genotyping platform for onion. Workshops will be held at regional and national Allium meetings.
Develop a detailed genetic map for onion: Identify simple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in onion; Develop high throughput SNP genotyping platform for onion; and Develop workshops for public and private-sector researchers, students, and regional grower and consumer groups for onion to illustrate the usefulness of genomics to solve high-priority research goals.
