Lead Investigator(s) Institution
University of Saskatchewan - CDC
To support pea genome sequencing as part of a global research partnership.
The vast genomic resources developed will be used to accelerate pea varietal improvement at Crop Development Centre (CDC) and internationally, through marker-assisted selection and/or introgression of useful genetic variation. Results from this project will create a strong foundation for long-term pea genetic improvement and also to maintain the competitiveness of the Canadian pea industry.
