Project: Multifactorial analysis of biomass in Arabidopsis thaliana exploring the underlying genetic network

project duration
01-OCT-03 – 30-SEP-07
abstract
The projects’ objective is to identify QTLs underlying biomass production in Arabidopsis thaliana. Therefore, we will analyse natural genetic variation for biomass in several accessions and map the phenotype on a high-density LD map. In addition, a multifactorial analysis of gene expression phenotypes will allow us to identify cis- and trans- acting elements and model the genetic network underlying the phenotype.
