This project is a two-year project. This report is for the first funding cycle. The second year repeated field phenotyping with ample replicates and a better designed experiment are critical to study the white mold disease segregation in this population, which is the base for the resistance gene mapping. For the genotyping, we are expecting to use the screened polymorphic SSR markers to genotype the whole segregating population in the second year. A genotyping by sequencing (GBS) approach will also be used to have a wide coverage of the peanut genomes.
