A Nested Association Mapping (NAM) Population of Rice

Published on 6 September 2013

Research Areas




Start Date: 1 August 2008 | End Date: 31 July 2013


The main objective of this project is to develop a composite population that would be suitable for Nested Association Mapping (NAM) analyses in rice. This population, once genotyped, can be used for fine mapping of numerous QTL alleles for drought tolerance or any other trait of interest, through precise phenotyping in multiple environments

    I am a PhD student with West African Centre for Crop Improvement (WACCI), University of Ghana developing my proposal on identification of QTL associated with drought tolerant traits in upland rice varieties in Nigeria, using Association Mapping (AM). Please I will appreciate it a lot if I can get technical assistance from your group and also a plat form that can assist in genotyping my germplasm.
