Description

We aim to apply to mustard rape cutting-edge genomic approaches first developed for oilseed rape in order to underpin improved productivity, sustainability and profitability. Specifically, we will:
1. Establish an updated Associative Transcriptomics platform for B. juncea.
2. Establish a genome re-sequenced B. juncea radiation panel platform.
3. Establish CRISPR-Cas9 technology in B. juncea.
4. Establish transcriptome re-sequenced resources for B. juncea introgression lines.
5. Establish a molecular cytogenetic toolkit to support alien introgression into B. juncea.
6. Establish a profile resource for key stress-relevant metabolites in B. juncea.
7. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of white rust tolerance.
8. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of stem rot tolerance.
9. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of black spot tolerance.
10. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of virus tolerance.
11. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of aphid tolerance.
12. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of Brassica-broomrape interaction.
13. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of temperature and drought tolerance.
14. Understand the genetic and molecular basis of salinity tolerance.
15. Ensure effective data management to support pre-breeding.
16. Ensure effective knowledge transfer.
17. Ensure effective project management.
