Flagship 2: Trait Determination

FP2_TraitDeterminationTrait determination understands and makes available genetic resources that promote step changes in crop performance.

Flagship 2 dissects the genetics of the constraints and opportunities identified in Flagship 1, and this includes prospecting for new sources of genetic or allelic variation using both conventional and bio-technological means.

FP2 characterizes available genetic variation for the ‘game changing’ traits that are defined in several of our Product Lines dealing directly with breeding for specific characters (PLs 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and 8). They continue to direct major strands of activity along the ‘trait delivery pipeline’ of FP2, 3 and 4.
