Regional Barley Genome Mapping Project

Barley is an important crop in many regions of the United States. Barley has unique quality attributes, and it is one of the most stress-tolerant cereal crops. A better understanding of the genetics of this plant will allow plant breeders to develop superior varieties. Examples of where genetic information will be useful are: resistance to diseases , such as Fusarium Head Blight and resistance to biotech stresses, such as low temperature and drought. Varieties that consistently produce high yields of quality grain per unit of input will contribute to the profitability and sustainability of US barley production. Research on Barley at OSU is supported in part by a USDA special grant.
