Objective
The overarching goal of this project is to achieve faster genetics gain in dry bean by integrating modern breeding technologies in a conventional dry bean breeding program. To achieve this, our major goals are (1) Develop a high-throughput phenotyping pipeline to increase selection accuracy; (2) Develop genomics-assisted breeding pipeline to the accuracy, increase selection coefficient, and decrease length of breeding cycle; (3) Increase selection intensity through marker-assisted selection for biotic and quality traits; (4) Increasing additive genetic variance; (5) Develop improved dry bean varieties with increased SNF.
