My laboratory has developed a complex introgression population of 800 lines comprised of 25 wild barley accessions backcrossed to an elite malting barley variety. These lines will be genotyped with SNP markers and phenotyped for nitrogen and water use efficiency, yield, tillering, heading date, height, lodging and other agronomic traits. The combined datasets will be used to identify QTL for these traits. This population will be available for screening a variety of other traits. Other research will involve analyzing data obtained in the project.
