Latest Research

High-throughput omics approaches for effective breeding selection of durum wheat quality

This project will focus on genetic and genomic approaches to predict quality parameters including protein content, yellow pigment content (YPC) and milling quality in durum which will enable larger scale selections for those traits at earlier generations of breeding programs and ultimately accelerate the breeding programs on improving durum wheat quality.
