The Graingene model

The Graingene model

THE GRAINGENE research model builds on a platform of scientific knowledge and biotechnology contributed by the partners.

Graingene research programs

Technology: a platform of genomics and high through-put marker technologies supporting the research efforts of other Graingene programs

Abiotic stress: maintaining yield and quality under environmental stresses such as drought

Biotic stress: identifying resistance to living stresses such as nematodes and rusts

Duality: developing assays and molecular markers for and predicting end-use quality attributes in wheat

Gateway: trait development - capturing and integrating outputs from Graingene programs for the next stage in commercial breeding.
