Technical cooperation to identify molecular markers in tomato

The World Vegetable Center and the Rural Development Administration (RDA), Republic of Korea, have embarked on a technical cooperation project to identify molecular markers associated with disease and insect resistance for marker assisted selection in tomato breeding programs. Specific goals are to map bacterial wilt (Ralstonia solanacearum) and whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) resistance loci.

Technical cooperation to identify molecular markers in tomato

The World Vegetable Center and the Rural Development Administration (RDA), Republic of Korea, have embarked on a technical cooperation project to identify molecular markers associated with disease and insect resistance for marker assisted selection in tomato breeding programs. Il-Sheob Shin, an RDA scientist seconded to the Center, is the principal investigator, under the supervision of Roland Schafleitner, head of Biotechnology/Molecular Breeding. The project runs through January 2018.

Conventional and molecular marker-assisted selection and pyramiding of genes for multiple disease resistance in tomato

This work provides greenhouse, field, molecular marker, and laboratory protocols used in the screening and selection process that were applied to segregating populations during generation advance over three years to develop five multiple disease resistant F7 fresh market tomato lines.
