Project Number: 8042-21000-276-02-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 30, 2012
End Date: Sep 29, 2014
To anchor the blueberry whole genome sequence to the genetic linkage map of blueberry by mapping SSR markers from scaffolds of the genome assembly.
ARS will add SSR markers, developed from the largest scaffolds of the current whole genome assembly provided by the collaborator, to the genetic linkage map of blueberry. ARS will attempt to map two SSRs per scaffold whenever possible, one from each end to orient the scaffold on the map.
