Potato Genomics: What's Next? Webinar

Plant Breeding and Genomics October 24, 2012 Print Friendly and PDF

Authors:

C Robin Buell, Michigan State University; Heather L. Merk, The Ohio State University

This webinar was presented at the 2011 Potato Association of America conference by Dr. C. Robin Buell, Michigan State University. Dr. Buell discusses generation and utility of potato genome and transcriptome sequence. Dr. Buell also discusses development of the SolCAP potato SNP array.

Introduction

With the recent release of the potato genome sequence and multiple transcriptome libraries, there is a wealth of data that may be leveraged to improve potatoes. Dr. C. Robin Buell describes the creation of these data and their potential utility. This webinar is divided into four videos.

During the introductory video, Dr. Buell reviews the approaches taken to sequence the potato genome.

During the second video, Dr. Buell describes sequencing of 45 transcriptome libraries using next generation sequencing. These libraries included transcribed sequences (e.g. mRNA) obtained from multiple stages of tuber and plant development, as well as tissue from plants under biotic and abiotic stresses. These transcriptome sequences were used to annotate the potato genome and to infer biological function. Analysis of sequence from the transcriptomes of three varieties (Snowden, Atlantic, and Premier Russet) was used to design the Solanaceae Coordinated Agricultural Project (SolCAP) potato single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array.
