Warwick Genetic Resource Unit (WGRU) Carrot collections
Summary of WGRU Carrot collection
For replicated trait analysis, 1533 carrot accessions are too many to trial. How can we cope with high levels of genetic variation within genebank accessions?
To address this, VeGIN has created a carrot diversity set with representative coverage of the species genepool, providing a structured population to cope with the high levels of genetic variation within the genebank accessions. Having this structured population allows the collation of data from different experiments.
