Location: Hard Winter Wheat Genetics Research Unit
Project Number: 5430-21000-010-22
Start Date: Sep 01, 2014
End Date: Aug 30, 2019
High-throughput next generation sequencing technology will be used to identify genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) markers linked to FHB resistance QTLs and to develop breeder-friendly SNP markers for marker-assisted breeding. Pyramid the QTLs into adapted US hard winter wheat cultivars using marker-assisted backcrossing to develop hard winter wheat cultivars/germplasm with high levels of FHB resistance.
