cap grant
CAP Grant
  • Discover new, valuable, genes and QTLs
  • Deploy them into adapted varieties around the country
  • Use marker-assisted selection strategies to enhance gene deployment
cap grant3
CAP Grant
  • 16 institutions around the country coordinate breeding efforts
  • 4 year grant started in 2006
  • Over 20 cultivars/germplasm already released

impact of wheat in washington in 2006
Impact of Wheat in Washington In 2006
  • Excess of 2.2 million acres planted
    • 81% winter wheat, 19% spring wheat
  • Over 140 million bushels harvested
  • Net return of $615 million
new characteristics needed
New Characteristics Needed
  • Drought tolerance
  • Disease and Insect resistance/tolerance
  • Herbicide resistance/tolerance
  • High yield
  • Excellent end-use quality (High GPC)
definitions
DNA—Deoxyribo nucleic acid that carries the genetic information in a cell

Gene—a sequence of DNA that occupies a specific location and determines a particular characteristic

Definitions
definitions9
Definitions
  • Allele-one member of a pair of genes that occupies a specific location on DNA
  • A= a=
    • = homozygous dominant
    • = homozygous recessive
    • = heterozygous
crossing
Crossing
  • Plants are identified which have the trait and which need the trait
  • Cross is made to introgress trait

Definitions
  • Molecular Markers—DNA segments that can be used as flags to track genes
  • Linkage—occurs when particular genes are inherited jointly
  • Linked Markers—markers which are closely associated with a gene

Gene

Marker

We know the DNA sequence of the marker

Sometimes we do not know the sequence of the gene we are looking for

We can use the marker to indirectly select for the gene of interest

marker assisted selection
Marker-Assisted Selection
  • Identify marker which is linked to gene
  • We can extract DNA from the plants and look for the presence of the marker
  • This will tell us which have the trait and which do not

pcr explanation
PCR Explanation
  • Polymerase Chain Reaction
  • Used to amplify DNA via enzymatic replication
  • Allows a small amount of DNA to be used for analysis
  • PCR reaction

gel electrophoresis
Gel Electrophoresis
  • Allows separation of PCR product
  • DNA inserted into agarose gel
  • DNA fragments travel with current
  • Smaller fragments will travel faster than large fragments
evaluation
Evaluation
  • After MAS has identified which plants carry the trait, further evaluation is done in the field to make sure the plants are productive
  • Time to release a variety is shortened
  • Why would this be important?
