Lead Researcher (PI): Curtis Pozniak
Institution: University of Saskatchewan
Total WGRF Funding: $173,998
Co-Funders: Agriculture Development Fund, Alberta Wheat Commission, Manitoba Crop Alliance, Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission
Start Date: 2022
Project Length: 4 Years

Generate a high-quality de novo genome assembly for AAC Tenacious to identify genes for FHB resistance and associated crop traits. Characterize the TILLING population for FHB resistance. Identify and validate gene mutations leading to FHB susceptibility/resistance.
