Traits & Protocols - Cassava

The GCP publication Drought phenotyping in crops: from theory to practice contains a chapter specifically dedicated to the drought phenotyping of cassava - Phenotyping cassava for adaptation to drought by E Okogbenin, Tim L Setter, M Ferguson, R Mutegi, AC Alves, H Ceballos and M Fregene. This provides valuable guidance on principles, traits and processes for both practising breeders and students of the subject.

Both the trait dictionary for cassava and information on SNPs markers and other markers are provided in the Crop Information pages of this portal. A link to the cassava crop ontology, which is under development, is also provided.
