About the project
Salix Molecular Breeding Actions - SAMBA
The aim of the research project is to develop breeding methods for important and complex traits in Salix where selection with traditional methods is difficult or inefficient. The construction of genetic maps will help us to understand the genetics behind resistance and tolerance against insect pests and pathogens, and traits affecting plant growth. The long-term goal is to develop molecular markers that can be used to make early selections in the breeding process of Salix.
