Research Project: Mapping Loci Conferring Resistance to FHB and DON Accumulation in Barley

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-15-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 2, 2016
End Date: May 1, 2021

Identify and incorporate into barley cultivars genes that confer a high level of resistance to FHB and the accumulation of mycotoxins.

1) determine the number, effect, and chromosomal position of FHB resistance loci in the select barley accession PI350725 (a two-rowed variety from the Tyrol in Austria) using the advanced backcross QTL method and 2) provide adapted FHB-resistant parental materials to barley improvement programs.
