The JKI Institute for Breeding Research on Agricultural Crops promotes the systematic development of plant genetic resources. On that account, we apply and elaborate current methods of breeding research to widen the genetic basis of specific crops and focus on aspects like “resilient plants”, “product quality” and “renewable raw materials”.



Role in the Legume Generation project

We will generate several biparental segregating populations, which besides their direct breeding use, are the perfect object-basis to study inheritance and to develop molecular markers for new traits. We will do a genetic analysis of new traits and will deliver linked molecular markers.
