Project summary:- This is a NABI’s flagship program, which is funded by Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India. The network project “Development of Bio-fortified and Protein-rich Wheat” will be executed in collaboration among seven networkpartners. The project will include i) evaluation of wheat germplasms for Fe, Zn, folate, and grain protein content, starch quality and antinutritional factors, ii) Validation and characterization of available genes/QTLs/markers for micronutrients, iii) Development of mapping populations (F2, RILs, NILs, BCs) for genetic analysis, iv) Development of high density linkage maps and QTL maps using high thoughput SNPs, v) Epistatics interactions (QTLxQTL, QTL x environment) analysis, and vi) development of wheat varieties with enhanced micronutrient content and enhanced bioavailability and bio-accessibility.
