Molecular markers for disease resistance in various crops obtained by NBS profiling

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterProfessional

    Abstract

    Breeding for resistance is one of the major efforts in many breeding programmes. As in organic farming the use of pesticides is prohibited, resistant cultivars are of high importance. To select for resistant plants, screening assays are needed that often are laborious and require extensive knowledge on plant-pathogen interactions. To facilitate the introgression of resistance genes into adapted breeding material, molecular markers are a powerful tool.
