This project aims to train a Colombian student in the application of molecular markers in a practical breeding program. Specific research objectives include:
- Identifying sources of resistance to Ascochyta and promote their use.
- Generate F1 populations from crosses between sources of Asaochyta resistance and commercial bean varieties, Bola Rojo and Cargamento.
- Evaluate segregating populations produced as a result of the above crosses.
- Conduct phenotypic and genotypic assessments of segregating populations in order to identify molecular markers associated with resistance to Ascochyta and Antracnosis.
