Research Project: Genotyping Wildland Collections

Location: Forage and Range Research

Project Number: 2080-21500-002-007-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2020
End Date: Aug 30, 2025

Genotype collection of Wildland forbs using one of several methods: GBS, Riptide RAPD, or skim sequencing. Analyze genetic markers for genetic relatedness and groupings. Coordinate with NRCS for publications.

Forb collections will be made in silica gel by NRCS scientists and shipped to the FRR. The FRR will extract DNA, prepare a genotyping library of bulked samples, and submit for sequencing at third party vendors. After sequencing, the FRR will de-multiplex the samples by barcode, and conduct population relatedness ananyses.
