TrackGene: video-tracking insect resistance genes in field and greenhouse crop populations

Projecttitel: TrackGene: video-tracking insect resistance genes in field and greenhouse crop populations
Projectnummer: LWV19167
Missie: Sleuteltechnologieën
MMIP: ST2 - Biotechnologie en veredeling
Looptijd: 2020 – 2023
Projectleider: Maarten Jongsma

The aim of this project is to make the video tracking method of identifying resistance useable in plant breeding by direct association of the video tracking data to the genetic variation of the tested plant populations through the development of TrackGene, 
a package that performs statistical genetic association analysis and optimizes settings by machine learning with a graphic output to quickly assess results.
