Development of genomic resources for lentil for gene discovery controlling economic traits using association mapping in germplasm collections.
The project will genotype a representative lentil core collection of 200 germplasm lines we have assembled at Pullman, with a 1536 SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) genotyping assay developed by University of Saskatchewan, according to published criteria and in consultation with the ADOR. Illumina GoldenGate based genotyping developed by University of Saskatchewan and the collaborative genotyping represents substantial savings over a stand alone project. This collaboration will allow ARS Pullman to gain genomics technologies, foster integration into an international consortium in lentil genomics, and identify specific follow on research avenues of interest to lentil breeding in the Pacific Northwest production area.
