Construction and application of a multifunctional and saturated genetic map for forest species

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-1999-01159
Project type: RS (Research and Technological Development Project)
Starting date: 01-02-2000
Duration: 36 months
Total cost: 1,102,400 EUR
EC Contribution: 899,642 EUR
Scientific Officer: Pierre VAN ASBROECK
Research topic: 5.3.1. Multifunctional management of forests

Abstract:
The aim of the project is to construct an ultra-high density linkage map (UHD map) of Pinus pinaster based on up to12.000 AFLP markers. and 100 published microsatellites (SSR). This map will be placed on the WWW and fully exploited for comparative genome analyses and QTL analysis in different genetic backgrounds. Four other published linkage maps in forest species will be aligned with the reference map. Based on reduced linkage maps derived from a common subset of primer combinations, comparative genome analysis will be performed in different pine species and related gymnosperms. QTL analysis for important characters in different forest species will be performed and QTL effects and positions compared. Allele-specific markers for important QTLs will be developed and their variability in local germplasm and breeding material will be analysed.
