Increase the diversity of traits available in wheat via a comprehensive pre-breeding programme

This project intends to help ensure the sustainability of wheat production in the UK and beyond amid a growing global population and a changing environment. This project will identify new and useful genetic variation from ancient sources of wheat germplasm to accelerate the genetic improvement of modern UK wheat. Through free and open international collaboration, including the coordination of similar initiatives across the world, the resources and insights generated will contribute to global food security. The main aim will be to identify genetic factors affecting wheat yield such as drought tolerance and resistance to pests and diseases. Using this knowledge, researchers will cross different wheat strains to produce the germplasm required for breeding. They will also generate a database of genetic markers for use in so-called "precision breeding".
