Registration and utilisation of molecular breeding data in resistance breeding

Research output: Article


The aim of resistance breeding is to transfer naturally occurring genes into major crops in order to improve their resistance to biotic and abiotic stress factors. In recent years a complete information system has been elaborated in Martonvásár, which amalgamates breeding and IT knowledge and is continually revised. The use of methods based on molecular breeding and the transgenic technique have made it necessary to create new types of databases to record information on genes, markers and transformation vectors. In order to facilitate the use of the data by breeders, new software also had to be designed for the following functions: (1) to identify useful resistance genes in genomic databases, (2) to identify and store markers suitable for the marker-assisted selection of basic genetic materials, (3) to provide real-time information to breeders (at the required time for the required search parameters) to facilitate the choice of crossing partners, (4) to test the ability to monitor transformation experiments, and (5) to make these experiments compatible with conventional breeding (crossing) programmes.
