SNP chip based High-Density Linkage Map and its Application to QTL Mapping of nitrogen uptake and utilization in Bread Wheat


In this talk I discuss about the development of linkage map in PBW 677 x PBW 703 derived RIL population. I also discussed about our newly developed pipeline using R/qtl and ASMap how to correct for genotyping errors in genotyping-by-sequencing derived SNPs. Also, talked about the validity, accuracy and comparison of the developed linkage map with newly developed genome assembly of wheat. Lastly, discuss the application of linkage map in identifying QTLs for NUE.
