Increase in Population with no commensurate increase in cultivatable land will double the demand for food and renewable fuel and fibre. Generating better quality and quantity of food is the major need of the present and future.
High cost of farm Inputs, soil exhaustion, depletion of fresh ground water, low genetic diversity and adverse impact of global climatic changes require innovative technologies to increase productivity.
Breeders need more efficient tools to unlock and apply to existing genetic diversity of plants, to understand the relationship between genotype and phenotype.
QTLomics with substantial understanding of genomics of crop plants, offers promise for Plant Breeders to realize and utilize innovative technologies in plant breeding.
QTLomics will combine the power of traditional and Marker Assisted Breeding Programs with contemporary cutting edge genomic tools to catalyse the hybridization of desirable traits in the crop.
QTLomics is committed to assist plant breeders in improving crop productivity by discovering new markers for important traits, apply known markers and genome assisted breeding.
