Gene Mapping

Together with many scientists in IRRI and other institutes we are identifying QTL and marker-trait associations using different types of populations for various agronomic and quality traits. RILs, DHs, introgression lines, single chromosome segment substitution lines (CSSLs), MAGIC, and assembled association panels. The key activities are (1) the development of analytical pipelines for linkage and association mapping, (2) the study of epistasis using CSSLs and (3) the development of specialized mapping populations.
