Research Project: Evaluation of Camelina Germplasm and Seed Bank Assessions by Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) for Compositional Analysis

Location: Functional Foods Research

Project Number: 5010-41000-167-11-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 5, 2018
End Date: Sep 30, 2019

Objective:
Evaluation of camelina germplasm and seed bank assessions by near-infrared spectroscopy for compositional analysis.

Approach:
Camelina seed accessions will be subjected to rapid non destructive evaluation by NIRS for compositional analysis. Analysis may include fat, protein, moisture and/or gluosinolates, using calibrations developed by ARS.
