Project: A functional genomic approach for the identification of QTLs and candidate disease resistance genes in popular
- project duration
- 01-OCT-03 – 30-SEP-05
- Poplar populations will be tested for quantitative disease resistance. QTLs that are involved with the resistance will be mapped and markers for breeding can then be developed. Transcript profiling will be perfomed to identify genes that are differentially expressed in the resistant reaction and the loci that regulate these genes will be mapped.
