Project: Multifactorial analysis of biomass in Arabidopsis thaliana exploring the underlying genetic network
- project duration
- 01-OCT-03 – 30-SEP-07
- 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.
