Research Project: Developing the Genomic Infrastructure for Breeding Improved Black Raspberries(ncsu)

Location: Horticultural Crops Research

Project Number: 2072-21220-002-10
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Dec 01, 2011
End Date: Aug 31, 2015

Objective:
Studying genotype by environment interaction on specific traits of interest in crosses involving diverse wild black raspberry germplasm. Gain a better understanding of consumer preferences for market expansion.

Approach:
Studying genotype by environment interaction on specific traits of interest in crosses involving diverse wild germplasm. Mapping populations that segregate for a variety of traits have been generated using germplasm from the edges of the species native range. The populations will be planted and evaluated in New York, North Carolina and Oregon. Analyses of fruit chemistry will be made to examine total anthocyanins and phenolics. Evaluate transferability of SSR markers developed in black raspberry to red raspberry. SSR markers mined from black raspberry EST and genomic sequences will be evaluated for amplification and polymorphism in red raspberry by capillary electrophoresis. olymorphism will be determined and added to linkage maps for those populations by UK collaborators.
