BrasExplor: Wide exploration of genetic diversity in Brassica species for sustainable crop production

Wide exploration of genetic diversity in Brassica species for sustainable crop production

Objective: Identification relevant material and their adaptive traits to face upcoming climate change in the Mediterranean area and so to contribute to biodiversity-based agriculture

A broad sampling of wild populations and local landraces of Brassica rapa and B. oleracea along a large climatic gradient will be used to:

  • identify genomic regions involved in the adaptation of both species to environmental variations,
  • determine the genetic bases of these traits underlying local adaptation
  • develop new agronomic material with relevant traits in the context of climate change for both Brassica species
