Resistance Screen

Testing Services Detail


Resistance Screen testing is offered on:
Cucurbits   Lettuce   Pepper   Tomato     


CSP Genetics Lab offers identification of disease resistant individuals by using Inoculation and Trait markers.
The trait markers include SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymophisim), CAPS (Cleaved Amplified Polymorphic Sequences)
and SCAR (Sequence Charaterized Amplified Regions) markers. For example, in tomato, we offer screening by inoculation for F1, F2, F3, V2 and we offer trait markers for nematode - Mi, TSWV - Sw5, TMV - Tm2, Speck - Pto, Verticillium - Ve and others. For lettuce, closely linked markers are available for corky root disease - Cor gene. We can screen F2 segregating populations and return survivors back to clients.
