AltSB: a major sorghum Al tolerance gene

Gene Incontrovertible evidence that novel Al tolerance genes exist in the sorghum genome was obtained.  Elite Al tolerant sorghum hybrids developed from the breeding program; AltSB confirmed as a major aluminum tolerance gene and cloned.  As well,   6 preliminary candidate genes for maize Al tolerance via association analysis and verification of two of these by linkage analysis were identified. Study of genetic control of aluminum tolerance in sorghum and maize

A microsatellite kit for the GCP sorghum reference germplasm set Genomic Resources Reference kit of 48 SSRs, with sequence list and protocol, germplasm checks, and allele sizes of microsats for those checks Assessment of diversity in cassava collections Contact Jean-Francois Rami, CIRAD, Montpellier France
A validated Sorghum germplasm reference collection Genomic Resources The Sorghum Reference Set is composed of a core set of accessions representing the genetic diversity of the entirety of the ICRISAT germplasm bank collection. The reference set represents a critical resource for plant scientists to study new adaptative traits, discover new favorable alleles and also new parental lines for prebreeding crosses. The Associated Marker kits are a set of markers that has been used to characterize the corresponding reference set collection. Using this same set of markers, any scientist will be able to compare the diversity of his/her own deversity panel with the reference set, and request appropriate accessions from the reference set to introduce new diversity in his/her germpalsm.
