Application of marker assisted selection to improve the efficiencies of breeding peanut and warm season grasses.
Segregating populations of peanut will be developed, grown, and analyzed for molecular markers. Data will be used to select genotypes with improved disease resistance and improved quality traits. Segregating populations of warm season grasses will be developed, grown, and analyzed for molecular markers. Data will be used to select improved genotypes for turf, bioenergy, and other uses.
