Mapping populations

The Brassica mapping populations described below are currently held at Warwick GRU. Enquires relating to accession details and seed requests should be made to Graham Teakle.

*The BolTBDH population is the reference mapping population for B. oleracea. The parental line TO1000DH3 is the reference genome for the B. oleracea sequencing project [8].

^Seed for some accessions in this population are being bulked, therefore these accessions will not be available.

**This Oilseed rape mapping population is the reference population being used in the OREGIN project.
