DEVELOPING MOLECULAR MARKERS FOR ENHANCING RESISTANCE TO DROUGHT AND HIGH SALINITY IN ALFALFA

DROUGHT AND HIGH SALINITY

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Research, Education & Economics Information System (REEIS)

Titre : DEVELOPING MOLECULAR MARKERS FOR ENHANCING RESISTANCE TO DROUGHT AND HIGH SALINITY IN ALFALFA

Identification : CALW-2015-08210

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Sep 1, 2015 à Aug 31, 2018

Mots clés : gbs ; molecular marker ; alfalfa ; drought and salt resistance ; genome wide association

Partenaire : AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH SERVICE 800 BUCHANAN ST, RM 2020 BERKELEY,CA 94710-1105

Objectifs
Objective 1 : Develop diverse alfalfa populations for identifying genes conditioning drought/salt tolerance traits. Objective 2 : Map QTLs associated with drought and salt resistance using genome-wide association studies. Objective 3 : Develop molecular markers and strategies for selection of drought and salt tolerant alfalfa and breeding for superior varieties with drought and salt resistance.

The long-term goal of this research is to develop new methods for evaluating alfalfa for rapid identification of resistance to yield-limiting stresses caused by environmental factors and to improve understanding of the genetic factors controlling resistance to these stresses in order to develop superior alfalfa cultivars with enhanced drought/salt resistance and water use efficiency.
