Project: Genetic improvement of Phaseolus vulgaris using exotic bean germplasm and biotechnology.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- This collaborative research is aimed at enchancing the use of wild forms of P.vulgaris and other cultivated species of the genus in the improvement of the common bean. Therefore, modern biochemical and molecular technologies will be utilized to characterize, clone and transfer seed sotrage genes responsable for resistance to storage grain insects and to develop a molecular genetic linkage map of selected Phaseolus species.
