Completed Research 
  • Post harvest discolouration has been induced in a lettuce diversity set and the F7 mapping parents have showed differences for the discolouration responses and overall discolouration.

    • A new lettuce map based on 125 F7 recombinant inbred lines has been created using Cos and AFLP markers, resulting in 9 linkage groups.
    • A new quantitative scoring system for pinking has been developed for leaf discs.
