Lettuce diversity set founder lines. Number per type


Eighty eight lines produced seed. Some lines are biennial, and the rest have been re-sown.

DNA has been extracted from all founder lines.

Enquires relating to accession details and seed requests should be made to Graham Teakle.


We have genotyped the diversity set with 682 Lettuce specific SNP based KASP markers . These data are being used

to explore population structure.

The SNP collection and all sequence data will be posted soon.
