Mapping and analysis of genetic loci controlling quality traits in broccoli - a new broccoli linkage map and mapped quality trait QTLs

By Peter Glen Walley, John Carder, Emma Skipper, I. Puddephat, David Pink and Vicky Buchanan-Wollaston


Aims of the project 1. Identify and map additional QTL linked to a range of quality traits a. Shelf life (turgor); QTL for yellowing already identified b. Nutrient content (different components) c. Stability of nutrients during storage d. Head morphology 2. Analyse nutrients and potential flavour attributes a. Global metabalome analysis b. Key nutrients (antioxidants, glucosinolates, flavanoids, vitamins) 3. Fine scale mapping of QTL, potential gene identification a. Backcross selected lines for fine scale mapping b. Microarray analysis c. Candidate gene nominatio
