Genetic solutions for determining fibre quality traits in sugarcane

This PhD project is comparing a set of genotypes with soft and normal fibre quality, with respect to anatomy (using microscopy and image analysis) and biochemical composition to look for traits linked to fibre quality, and will also use genetic analysis to identify any associations between existing Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) array data and fibre quality measurements.
