Canola is vulnerable to heat and drought stress, which can severely impact seed yield and quality.
Diversify Canadian canola with stress-resistance genes, identify candidate genes involved in the control of heat and drought resistance, and collaborate with canola breeders to develop tightly linked molecular markers for these resistance genes through the application of traditional breeding and modern genomic tools.
This section will be updated upon completion of the project.
This research will help to develop commercially available canola varieties with gene-resistance to heat and drought stress.
