Study of the resistance to leaf pathogens of the industrial chicory and development of molecular tools for marker assisted breeding.

Project: Research

Project Details


The CHICOPAT project aims at determining the genes differentialy expressed in industrial chicory following infection by leaf pathogens. We'll compare sensitive and resistant cultivars and we'll look for polymorphisms withing these differentialy regulated genes. This polymorphism to design new molecular tools usefull for marker assisted breeding.
