Breeding plays a key role in achieving global food security in the context of an increasing global population. Scientists in the department of Breeding Research are aiming to generate insights and develop innovative approaches to allow the genetic diversity of crop plants to be better exploited as a way of achieving future breeding goals. The research group of Biotic Stress Genomics should focus on functional genomic approaches for durable resistance of crops (preference wheat and/or barley) by applying for instance automated disease phenotyping, gene silencing, transcript profiling, allele mining, or population genetic approaches.
