Genome analysis for enhanced plant breeding

With climatic pressure everincreasing and arable land becoming a rare commodity, agriculture is faced with the challenge of sustainably feeding 9 billion people in 2050. One way of facing up to this challenge is through the creation of new plant varieties that are both more productive and environmentally friendly.

Plant breeding requires the identification of interesting characteristics (high yields, disease resistant, drought resistant) as well as the identification of genes and molecular mechanisms that govern them. These processes require a broad range of disciplines including phenotyping, genetics, molecular biology and genomic resources management.

With this multidisciplinary aim in mind, the CNRGV provides genomic resources and expertise, through varied dimensional projects (from the identification of one gene to sequencing of a whole genome), to public laboratories and private companies. Such projects could be based on already existing resources or might include the creation of new libraries.

Positional cloning of the SrWLR locus involved in the wheat stem rust resistance

The project is developed in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr Maricellis Acevedo (North Dakota State University) as part of Jason Zurn PhD thesis.

The project's objective is to characterize the SrWLR locus, responsible for stem rust resistance in wheat.
