Projecttitel: Application of sequence-based multi-allelic markers in genetics and breeding of polyploidsProjectnummer: LWV 20.112 Missie: SleuteltechnologieënMMIP: ST2 Biotechnologie en veredelingProjectleider: Paul Arens
Highly diverse and polyploid breeding populations may contain multiple alleles at any trait locus of interest, each of which may have various positive, neutral or negative effects on a trait. Multi-allelic markers (i.e. haplotypes) are needed to analyze and catalogue the effects of different alleles in trait loci that are important for breeding. We will develop methods for haplotyping in breeding populations from low depth sequence data, catalog haplotypes and use these for genetic prediction.
