Project Description

Work packages of the project

We aim to make maize diversity amenable to crop improvement by developing methods to create haplotype inventories of different populations (WP1), integrating phenotypic traits to maximize prediction accuracy und expand mechanistic understanding (WP2), performing high-resolution QTL mapping (WP3) to identify candidate genes for functional characterization (WP4) and by genome based prediction (WP5). Sustainable integration of data across experimental populations, phenotyping platforms, and traits will be performed in WP6.
