In collaboration with Prof. Stevanato of University of Padova, Italy, Prof. Subhasini Srinivasan of IBAB has published a research article in Frontiers in Plant Science titled “SNP Alleles Associated With Low Bolting Tendency in Sugar Beet”. The study identified two important single nucleotide polymorphisms in the Sugar Beet genome that are associated with a low bolting phenotype. The authors suggest that this can be further exploited for marker-assisted breeding.
