GRDC Code: UOQ2005-012RTX
Screening of diverse barley germplasm for rapid discovery and utilisation of novel disease resistance in barley novel using R-HapSelect: A haplotype-based toolkit.

The three barley pathogens, that cause spot form of net blotch (SFNB), net form of net blotch (NFNB), and Scald are genetically and pathogenically diverse. They reproduce sexually, rapidly develop new virulences and overcome genetic resistance making it important to identify new sources of resistance. The objective of this project is to use R-HapSelect, a haplotype-based toolkit, to rapidly identify new resistances to these three pathogens to increase the number of NFNB, SFNB and Scald resistance genes available to breeders. The project also aims to determine the optimal combinations of resistant genes to provide long lasting durable of resistance in barley cultivars.
