Identification of markers and genomic regions associated with aflatoxin resistance in peanut

Duration: 19/Aug/2016 - 31/Dec/2019

Locations: Asia

Project contact: Dr Rajeev K Varshney (R.K.Varshney@CGIAR.ORG)

Donor: Private industry,Mars Chocolate North America - LLC

CGIAR Research Program: Grain Legumes

At present, there is not much information available on molecular markers and genes associated with aflatoxin contamination that can be used in molecular breeding. Therefore, identification of markers and genes conferring resistance to aflatoxin resistance is a must for deploying molecular breeding approaches to develop superior lines with enhanced resistance to aflatoxin.
