Research Project: Identification of Genetic Components Underlying Desirable Flavor Properties of Whole Grain Wheat Products

Location: Wheat Health, Genetics, and Quality Research

Project Number: 2090-43440-007-008-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 1, 2015
End Date: Jan 31, 2017

Identify the genetic components underlying desirable flavor properties of whole grain wheat products.

Use our existing mouse model system for determining relative consumption preference of individual wheat genotypes; evaluate a doubled haploid population using the mouse model for consumption preference; and evaluate 20 hard white winter doubled haploid breeding lines from Colorado State University. Quantify the relative consumption preference using Student’s t Score.
