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.
