Research Project: Genotyping of Vaccinium Association Panel

Location: Genetic Improvement for Fruits & Vegetables Laboratory

Project Number: 8042-21000-279-03-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2017
End Date: Aug 31, 2018

Objective:
Carry out genotyping of a diversity panel of blueberry and cranberry samples using an efficient next-gen sequencing method (Capture-Seq).

Approach:
Cooperator will provide plant material to ARS. ARS will extract high quality deoxyribonucleic acid and send it to cooperator for genotyping. Cooperator will perform genotyping using Capture-Seq (an efficient alternative to genotyping by sequencing) and will provide ARS with all resulting data. ARS will analyze the data using various programs and modules to perform genome wide association mapping.
