Research Project: Genetic Analysis and Trait-Specific Molecular Marker Development

Location: Sugarcane Research

Project Number: 6052-21000-016-048-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 1, 2021
End Date: May 31, 2023

Objective:
To genetically analyze sugarcane germplasm and develop trait-specific molecular markers to assist sugarcane breeding.

Approach:
1. ARS PI will provide original moledular marker and field agronomic trait data; 2. Collaborator will conduct statistical and genetic analysis of the molecular and agronomic trait data; 3. Collaborator will use bioinformatics software to construct genetic linkage and quantitative trait loci (QTL) maps to identify trait-associated QTL markers; and 4. ARS PI and collaborator will jointly prepare manuscript(s) for publication.
