Begonia for genetic analyzes in polyploids

Goal of the project is to enable genetic analysis in the tetraploid crop Begonia. The project is a supplement on the project BO-26.03-002-001: A pipeline for genetic analysis in polyploids, in which generic methods and software for genetic mapping and analysis of traits for use in indirect selection will be developed and also validated.

Because begonia can be inbred is this crop a good supplement for the further development of methods and software and can be used as a model crop. In the project a number of qualitative and quantitative traits important for breeding in begonia will be studied.
