Maintaining a barley pre-breeding capability in Queensland

Plain text source: 
Foliar diseases of barley frequently cause significant losses in both yield and grain quality in the Northern Region (NR) and in other barley growing areas of Australia... Use of the NAM will enhance training and capacity building for postgraduate students studying barley genetics and pathology.A structured NAM population will be generated using reference varieties crossed with existing elite lines from the NR barley germplasm pool and exotic lines identified from the new barley foliar pathogens project (DAQ00187)... Whole genome profiling of lines using new marker platforms will identify the presence of closely-linked markers for new genes and better markers for existing genes involved in the expression of disease resistance...
