Genetic analysis and marker delivery for sugarcane breeding
This project seeks to address the integration of molecular markers into sugarcane breeding to help guide the selection of new varieties and increase the rate of genetic gain. New varieties are the major drivers of productivity in the Australian sugarcane industry. The use of molecular markers in cultivar development would give breeders the ability to increase selection pressure for key traits by applying selection at stages of the breeding cycle when it is not possible/practical to use phenotyping.
