`Developing functional links between vegetable brassica genetic resources, molecular genetics & crop improvement.` - GC0112SFV

A. To collate the existing diverse range of pedigree, provenance, marker locus and trait data relating to Brassica oleracea genetic resources in a comprehensive database application. To make these data available and to ensure functional links are established with relevant genome databases (e.g AAtDB for A rabidopsis research).
B. To adapt an existing set of genetic markers to determine their suitability for surveying the genetic diversity of a selection of accessions in the Brassica oleracea resource collections and reference genetic populations.
C. To establish a lilmited image record of a representative sample of accessions held in the HRI Brassica genetic resource collection."
