Develop a pea nested association mapping (Pea-NAM) inbred line population segregating for seed protein concentration and yield. Genotype and phenotype the Pea-NAM population for seed protein concentration, yield and agronomic traits. Identify trait-associated markers using association mapping. Evaluate and validate genome prediction models using the NAM population.
