VitisGen2 Webinar: A low-cost core genome marker platform that works well across the diverse Vitis genus

A novel genome marker platform called rhAmpSeq delivers 2000 markers from 22,000 individuals covering 97% of the core grape genome. It increased transferability of DNA markers across the Vitis genus from previous SNP-based platforms from 2% to 91%. In this webinar, we will present some challenges with previous marker platforms, our approach to marker design, some exciting results, and our strategy to make this marker platform openly accessible and useful for the grape community. This platform should be of broad interest to biologists and plant breeders.

COST WG1 / EPPN2020 Workshop: Current and Future Applications of Phenotyping for Plant Breeding

Current and future applications of phenotyping for plant breeding

Plants develop by a complex interaction of genotypes with the environments which determines their structure and function and thus essential performance parameters such as yield, productivity or efficient use of resources. To understand these fundamental processes we need to quantitatively assess the phenotype and generate a link to the genotype in order to understand the genetic basis.
