Karen Aitken arrived at CNRGV in November 2010 and she stayed until February 2011.
She received an International Queensland fellowship to travel and undertake a collaborative research project with our laboratory.
The aim of her project is to identify regions of the sugarcane genome for sequence analysis and marker assisted selection in sugarcane breeding. She came in the laboratory to screen the R570 sugarcane BAC library in order to identify BAC clones that underlie QTL of agronomic importance.
