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