Improving fraxinux (ash) productivity for European needs by testing, selection propagation and promotion of improved genetic resources
RAP - (QLRT-2000-00631)
Genetic resources of Ash (Fraxinus) will be characterised by recording existing provenance, progeny and population tests and a new provenance trial of material from the European natural range will be established in six countries. Using previously developed polymorphic microsatellites and DNA markers, an estimate of Fraxinus' genetic diversity ... More (full abstract).

Genetic evaluation of European rose resources for conservation and horticultural use
GENEROSE - (QLRT-2001-01278)
This project focuses on the conservation and use of natural resources in the genus Rosa. Attempts to preserve rose gene pools without sufficient knowledge about the genetic background may counteract efforts to increase biodiversity, compromise the maintenance of (rare) indigenous species in landscaping and make it difficult to (re)introduce ...

Development of an environment-friendly F1 hybrid breeding technology
HybTech - (QLRT-1999-30902)
The F1 hybrid is a proven breeding tool since it results in better crop yields and the natural protection of breeders' rights. It relies on parental homozygosity and, in most crops, reversible male sterility. The former ensures the uniformity of the hybrid crops, the latter allows large-scale hybrid seed production without emasculation. Instead of ... More (full abstract).

Intra- and interspecific gene flow in oaks as mechanisms promoting diversity and adaptive potential
OAKFLOW - (QLRT-1999-30960)
The project aims to estimate the amount of intra- and interspecific (hybridisation) gene flow in European oaks, using Quercus petraea and Quercus robur mainly, but also other Mediterranean white oaks. This will be done by using genetic fingerprints and applying parentage analysis. The project will investigate the natural gene flow from ... More (full abstract).
