During this webinar, Dave Douches and Joe Coombs from Michigan State University discuss the generation of a tetraploid map for potato using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified in the Solanaceae Coordinated Agricultural Project (SolCAP). This webinar demonstrates high-throughput SNP calling in a tetraploid and introduces some of the issues inherent in tetraploid genetics and mapping.
Part 1: Introduction and Review of Resources for Diploid Mapping
Dr. Dave Douches is a professor in Crop and Soil Sciences at Michigan State University. He leads a breeding program that focuses on developing varieties for the potato industry that have improved processing quality and disease and insect resistance.
Joe Coombs has been working with the Michigan State University potato breeding program since 1996 as an assistant breeder focused on the program’s breeding and statistical analysis.
