Virginia Tech helping to develop higher quality, disease-resistant wheat varieties

ontrolling useful agronomic traits. Breeders use these molecular markers to increase the precision in selection of varieties having the best trait combinations.

Researchers will work with USDA genotyping laboratories to provide thousands of molecular analyses required to deploy the targeted genes into breeding lines. The genetic information will be stored in national databases and seed stocks deposited in USDA's Small Grain Collection, providing long-term public access to genetic information and resources for wheat breeders and researchers nationwide.

Public sector researchers are primarily responsible for providing new wheat varieties to U.S. wheat growers. Public wheat varieties accounted for 78 percent of the 2001-2003 wheat production in the U.S. which represents an average of 38 million metric tons per year valued at more than $5 billion.

This project includes an extensive outreach component to share information about these new technologies with growers and end-users and an educational program to attract new students to agriculture and train them in modern and traditional breeding techniques.
