Project: Identification of molecular markers for pathogen resistance in poplar.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- Using the AFLP technique, we will identify molecular markers associated with resistance towards economically important poplar diseases, like leaf rust, leaf spot disease and bacterial cancer. This research will result in the development of powerful and faster methods for indirect selection for resistance. The AFLP technique will also allow to develop methods to determine the biodiversity.
