Research:

Molecular plant breeding

  • Estimation of genetic diversity in several crop species with special consideration of barley and exploitation of genetic diversity by marker based breeding strategies including the identification of marker trait associations.
  • Development of markers for resistance genes to fungal and viral pathogens in crop species up to gene isolation
  • Identification of QTL and genes for resistance/tolerance to abiotic stress (drought/heat)
