A route to high recombinogenic genotypes


A new paper published by CEPLAS member Benjamin Stich and his team (HHU) uncovers a new method to identify highly recombinogenic genotypes.

The research group has developed a method to identify so-called highly recombinogenic individuals by using natural variations. Their method, tested in a large-scale barley experiment, was published in the Plant Biotechnology Journal.
