Application Note: Key Trait Screening on Global Wheat Accessions using KASP Genotyping Markers
11 January 2016
This application note offers an example of how KASP genotyping assays for QTL can be used to survey potential breed-lines for crop development using these publicly available markers. Greater availability of high-throughput genotyping methods has lead to an explosion of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) sequence data from plant genomes. This has enabled the discovery of large numbers of potential SNP markers for varietal improvement. The use of KASP genotyping as a cost-effective, efficient tool for introgression of important traits has now been widely published.
