Developing high quality cold tolerant rice varieties using molecular marker

Summary

The project will produce molecular markers for implementation in the rice breeding program. These molecular markers will allow for efficient selection of high quality cold tolerance germplasm.

Program

Rice

Research Organisation

Southern Cross University

Objective Summary

To identify regions of the rice genome that control cold tolerance at the microspore stage of pollen development develop molecular markers for these regions and use these markers for development of high quality cold tolerant rice varieties.
