The WheatCAP projects

The WheatCAP are consortium-based projects formed by US breeders from the public sector, USDA's small grains genotyping labs and GrainGenes with the close collaboration of other stakeholders of the wheat business.

The current WheatCAP started in December 2016, its goal is to validate, characterize and deploy QTLs for grain yield components. You can get updated and detailed information directly from the WheatCAP web site.

The first WheatCAP project extended between 2006 and 2009. Its main objective was to incorporate modern selection technologies to increase the competitiveness of public wheat breeding programs. You can see archival materials related to the first WheatCAP here.
