  1. 1. WP1: Increase efficiency of (marker assisted) breeding Andrea Patocchi ACW (EVD), Switzerland
  2. 2. Objectives <ul><li>Develop more efficient breeding programs applying markers assisted breeding </li></ul><ul><li>To reach this goal : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Selection strategies and schemes will be defined and tested in pilot studies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Molecular markers (SNPs) tightly linked to specific major horticultural traits will be developed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost-efficient MAB pipeline(s) will be implemented and used to genotype the plant material of the pilot studies </li></ul></ul>
