Genetic dissection of resistance to Grey leaf spot in tropical maize

Description of the topic

(i) Genetic dissection of GLS resistance in IMAS association mapping panel. (ii) validation of GWAS results in biparental population for GLS resistance, (iii) Genmic prediction of GLS resistance in association mapping panel and biparental population.

Work expectations

(i) Identify the markers associated with GLS resistance, (ii) finding reliable genomic regions associated with GLS resistance across populations. (iii) validating the application of GS in prediction of  GLS resistance in tropical maize
