Research Project: Application of Molecular Technologies to Improve Conventional Breeding Efficiencies in Peanut and Warm Season Grasses

Location: Crop Genetics and Breeding Research

Project Number: 6048-21000-026-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 01, 2010
End Date: Jul 31, 2015

Objective:
Application of marker assisted selection to improve the efficiencies of breeding peanut and warm season grasses.

Approach:
Segregating populations of peanut will be developed, grown, and analyzed for molecular markers. Data will be used to select genotypes with improved disease resistance and improved quality traits. Segregating populations of warm season grasses will be developed, grown, and analyzed for molecular markers. Data will be used to select improved genotypes for turf, bioenergy, and other uses.
