The first goal of this project is to give the breeder tools to accurately control the positions of recombinations when trying to overcome linkage drag (uncoupling desired resistance genes from unwanted genes), i.e.Controlled recombination (CORE). The second goal of this project is to reverse inversions in chromosomes of wild relatives.
