Location: Corn, Soybean and Wheat Quality Research
Project Number: 3607-21000-012-07-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Oct 1, 2009
End Date: Sep 30, 2012
Develop SNP markers for soybean aphid resistance genes for marker assisted breeding for the Rag2 gene.
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.
