Lettuce diversity set founder lines


Number per type

Eighty eight lines produced seed. Some lines are biennial, and the rest have been re-sown.

DNA has been extracted from all founder lines.

Enquires relating to accession details and seed requests should be made to Graham Teakle.

We have genotyped the diversity set with 682 Lettuce specific SNP based KASP markers . These data are being used to explore population structure. (Peter Walley and Jay Moore)

The SNP collection and all sequence data will be posted soon.
