Mango Genomics: No data to breeding programs
We are delighted with our association with ICAR-NIPB in the Mango Genomics project under the leadership of DR NK Singh Ji. The Mango genome is tough to work with due to its higher heterozygous nature.
When Dr NK Singh Ji started the work on Mango Genome, significantly less information was available about the genome. We have complete information about the mango genome, genes, functions and genetics.
It will strengthen the breeding program to develop better varieties.
These are the few projects of NIPB ICAR and collaborators in mango Genome and Transcriptome sequencing in the last few years.
Mango RNA Seq
Mango Fruit Transcriptome
Genomics Markers for Marker-assisted breeding
A refined genome assembly of Amrapali mango with Neelam and Dussehri parental haplotypes will be available shortly.
