Development of a Wild Sorghum BCNAM Panel

Grant No
GS15013
Project Description
This project aimed to render the genetic variation contained in wild sorghum more usable. To do so, the Australian public sorghum pre-breeding team developed back-cross populations with wild sorghum accessions for small breeding programs that do not have the capacity to work with the small-seeded, shattering wild material. Outputs included: a BCNAM population of 1,000 lines (available for both breeding and trait dissection), sequence data of 10 diverse crop wild relatives, genotype characterization of crops wild relatives; GBS and phenotypic data on the BCNAM population.
