Post-doctoral Fellowship: Designing roots to enhance durum wheat yield aligned with GRDC Project UOQ1810-002RTX-Rooty
Root biomass accumulation is considered a key aspect of root development that could potentially increase soil resource capture, particularly if the mechanism is combined with genes modulating root growth angle.
This investment explores the identification of Quantitative Trait Loci associated with root biomass and root angle and the potential of combining these in elite durum wheat lines for evaluation in durum production regions and use by breeding companies.
