New, and more virulent, pathotypes have been recently identified in Canadian canola fields and the identification of resistance to these newly-evolved pathotypes and introgression into canola is needed.
Introgress clubroot resistance genes from the cabbage/cauliflower-type plant species (B. oleracea) into Canadian canola, and develop molecular markers for these genes.
This section will be updated upon completion of the project.
These results should increase breeding efficacy for the development of clubroot resistant canola cultivars that possess more robust and durable resistance to the disease.
