Project abstract for group janderso

Wheat and Intermediate Wheatgrass Breeding and Genetics

These researchers are mapping genes in wheat that control important traits, including disease resistance and grain quality. Segregated populations of 100-200 lines, Association Mapping panels, and breeding lines for genomic selection are phenotyped in appropriate environments, and populated with several hundred to several thousand DNA markers to identify DNA markers associated with genes or QTLs affecting the trait or develop genomic selection models. Mapping populations currently active in this lab include those for leaf rust resistance, stem rust resistance, Fusarium head blight resistance, and grain end-use quality.
