Meiosis in barley: Mixing it up

Project description

Influencing meiotic recombination in barley

Progress in plant breeding relies on selecting favourable traits from genetically diverse materials to produce plants with desired characteristics. This genetic variation is largely assured through homologous recombination during meiosis. In cereal crops, such as barley, genetic variation arising during meiosis is mainly limited to chromosome ends, leaving the main part of the genetic material untouched. The EU-funded MEIOBARMIX project aims to find new strategies and develop innovative tools that will boost and redistribute genetic variation during meiosis in barley to help enhance and accelerate plant breeding.
