Marker Assisted Selection (MAS) And Participatory Plant Breeding (PPB) In Rice, India And Nepal
PDF File Size: 44 KB | Download   
Drought resistance in rice is physiologically and genetically complex, and there are a number of traits which are thought to contribute to drought resistance mechanisms. Drought-related traits are influenced by several or many genetic loci. Molecular linkage maps allow identification of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) Corresponding molecular markers can be used for selection in breeding to improve varieties for drought resistance. A molecular linkage map of the Bala x Azucena F6 population with 215 loci was produced and QTLs for blast resistance were mapped. Kalinga III was modified for root growth QTLs and aroma. Segregating lines were produced and approximately 100 seed from 59 lines were given to breeders in India and Nepal.
