Bulk-segregant analysis (BSA) for large-effect QTL detection

May 14, 2012

A population of 228 lines from a tolerant x susceptible cross has had DNA extracted and a polymorphism scan is underway.  High and low phenotypic tails for vegetative waterlogging stress tolerance have been identified, and genotyping is underway.  We expect to have identified any large-effect QTL segregating in the population and have initiated fine-mapping by the end of March 2010.
