ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 2
- Apply the novel technique of targeted mutagenesis in order to increase the accumulation of selected general traits.
- Generate molecular markers to assist in selection of these mutations in breeding programs.
- Cross mutant lines with varieties that already exhibit exceptional yield potential.
- Select best progeny using marker-assisted selection techniques.
This research is underway, so the research project’s final report is not available yet.
