Marker Assisted Recurrent Selection

MARS aims to take advantage of QTL information generated on breeding populations to develop superior lines with an optimum combination of favourable alleles originating from both parents. QTL alleles are accumulated through successive intercrossing using only genotypic selection.  Recombined lines are then subjected to a final phenotypic screening to select the best varieties to release.

The IBP Genotyping Services provide access to cost-effective genotyping laboratories.
