Marker assisted breeding in Apple, storage disorders, genetics
I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student working in the UM apple breeding program. My current research goals are to identify QTL for storage disorders (primarily apple soft scald) and work towards developing selectable markers for these QTL for use in the breeding program for marker assisted selection.
