Projecttitel: Genomics and bioinformatics tools for temperature-insensitive and sustainable cauliflower productionProjectnummer: LWV 20.156Missie: SleuteltechnologieënMMIP: ST2 Biotechnologie en veredelingProjectleider: Aalt–Jan van Dijk
A major bottleneck in the application of omics data is the lack of complete genome sequences. In this project, we address this challenge in the context of temperature-sensitive curd initiation in cauliflower. We will generate well-annotated genome sequences using the latest long-read sequencing technology, and apply innovative machine learning approaches to integrate sequence and expression data. This will provide plant breeders with technologies broadly applicable in crops with complex genomes.
