Jointly develop and characterize cotton SNP markers, and map these markers in the tetraploid cotton genome through cooperative research.
A simplified genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) approach, developed by cooperator's lab of the Biology Department at Texas A&M University, will be used to genotype recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of an interspecific cross between Gossypium hirsutum x G. barbadense (TM-1 x 3-79), developed by ARS PI's Lab at the USDA-ARS Southern Plains Agricultural Research Center, to discover novel single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers and develop an interspecific linkage map of the tetraploid cotton genome.
