Phylogenetic association mapping and its application to secondary metabolite variation in Brassicaceae species

Project description

Inter-species association mapping in genomics studies

The classical genetics approach does not allow the study of between-species variation as crosses between distinct species do not occur, and their genomes are usually highly rearranged. The goal of the EU-funded INTERACT project is to develop genomics-based methods for inter-species (phylogenetic) association mapping to discover signals in highly rearranged genomes of different species. The approach will be validated via its application to the variations in secondary metabolites within the Brassicaceae plant family. Secondary metabolites are highly variable and have broad application in cancer prevention, pest control and food design. The work and results of this project will significantly advance genetics research.
