QTL & Genetics
An important aspect in assisting the breeding programs involves generating the knowledge on genetic determination of traits of potential economic value. Once the information on relevant physiological mechanisms is transformed into the network of underlying genomic regions – quantitative trait loci (QTL) – and interactions of these QTLs are understood, such knowledge is open to the marker assisted technologies enabling utilization of these regions into the desired superior and locally adapted germplasm.
