Projecttitel: Faster breeding of new crops for high quality nutrition: quinoa as example and target crop
MMIP: ST2: Biotechnologie en veredeling
Looptijd: 2019 – 2023
The project will improve key genetic technologies in quinoa, a climate resilient crop with high abiotic stress tolerance for tasty, healthy food:
Novel genotyping technology for biodiversity study in Ecuadorian lines and genetic linkage mapping.
Assessment in large phenotyping facility of NPEC for QTL analysis of productivity and abiotic stress tolerance; genetic tools to improve nutritional quality of quinoa towards higher protein yield and content.
CMS system in quinoa and speeding up breeding.
