Research Project: Improvement of Oat Germplasm for Resistance/Tolerance to Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus Utilizing Marker-Assisted-Selection Breeding

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 5020-21220-014-002-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 1, 2022
End Date: Jun 30, 2024

Introgress Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV) tolerance and resistance genes into oat genetic backgrounds and develop DNA markers linked to these tolerance/resistance loci to facilitate oat breeding.

This project will employ Genomic Selection (GS) and Genome-wide Association Studies (GWAS) to develop oat lines with enhanced resistance/tolerance to BYDV.
