This project aims to:
- Produce doubled haploids in cassava and banana/plantain using centromere engineering
- Produce Agrobacterium binary vectors to replace endogenous CENH3 with altered variants in cassava and banana
- Create transgenic cassava and banana lines expressing altered CENH3 proteins in place of endogenous CENH3 (putative haploid inducers).
- Cross putative haploid inducing lines to wild-type cassava and banana, and assay for haploid progeny
