Abstract

The overall aim of this project was to establish methods for phenotypic screening and crop data collection to support QTL mapping of variation in wheat ear sterility. This is the precursor to understanding the genetics underlying vulnerability to sterility in UK wheat, with a view to identifying DNA markers for its elimination from breeding programmes. Our approach was to undertake population phenotyping coupled with genotyping and candidate plant trait identification and validation.
