By allowing breeders access to the complete genetic diversity available in the Oryza glaberrima species, we aim to:
- Deliver 60 sets of five to eight fertile interspecific lines derived from crosses between two O. sativa elite lines and 30 O. glaberrima accessions.
- Establish a high-throughput methodology based on SSR and SFP markers for rapid genome scanning of the introgressions.
- Fine map the chromosome 6 S locus, the major gene acting in the interspecific sterility barrier system, to derive a BC1 population from a cross between an O. sativa and an interspecific CSSL.
