Molecular Marker Development and Utilization at Ottawa - Within AAFC Integrated Oat Improvement Project Presented by Steve Molnar VIII International Oat Conference - Minneapolis, Minnesota - June 30, 2008
IOC Presentations Reflecting Molecular Marker Development at Ottawa Nick Tinker and Charlene Wight Steve Molnar and Doris Luckert & Colleagues
4 Genome Wide Markers We have several initiatives to develop more efficient markers for genome wide mapping, comparative mapping, and building an oat consensus map: DArT Marker Consortium Large numbers of low-cost markers for refining the KO map and rapidly mapping new crosses (details in Platform Presentation by Nick Tinker) SSR Markers New multi-allelic markers easily distinguish oat genotypes (details in poster by Charlene Wight, Wekai Yan, Jitka Deyl and Nick Tinker)
5 Target Specific Markers We have several initiatives to develop markers tagging specific loci for genetic studies and potential marker assisted breeding: Mapping the Dw6 dwarfing locus using NILs Dw6, and Pc91, located to KO33 near PCR-based markers (details in poster by Steve Molnar, Julie Chapados, Bonnie Bancroft, and Solomon Kibite) SCAR and CAPS markers linked to quality traits 8 markers targeting oil content and 15 for -glucan and protein content QTL regions (details in poster by Steve Molnar and Winson Orr)
