RobOat - Robustness of Oats for the Nordic Region

Project: Research

Project Details


The main aim within RobOat is to develop the resistance of future oats against biotic (especially crown rust and semi-loose smut) and abiotic (drought and waterlogging) stress factors. In this project, the partners will study the less explored oat genetic resources from NordGen and other collections by combining diverse phenotyping, genotyping and genomic methodologies.
