    • Application of molecular markers to sugarcane breeding 

      Jackson, P; Aitken, K; Baker, P; Foreman, J; Hewitt, M; Luckell, J; Piperidis, G; Li, J; Morgan, T; Wei, X (2006)
      The CRC SIIB marker application research aims to develop and evaluate ways to apply DNA markers to Australian sugarcane breeding programs to improve breeding, selection and fast release of high performing cultivars. This ...
    • Introgression of new genes from Saccharum officinarum 

      Jackson, P; Piperidis, G; Aitken, K; Li, J; Morgan, T; Foreman, J; Hewitt, M; McIntyre, L; Berding, N (SRDC, 2004)
      Modern sugarcane cultivars are derived from two main ancestral species: Saccharum officinarum, which is the main source of high sucrose levels, and S. spontaneum. Only a small number of clones of either species have ever ...
    • Selecting clones for better ratooning under wet harvesting conditions : SRDC final report CSR10S 

      Jackson, P; Braunack, M; Foreman, J; Peatey, T; Wood, A (1997)
      There were three broad aims of this project: (i) To develop and evaluate a method for screening genetic material under conditions where there is (a) stool damage from harvesting machinery under wet conditions, and (b) ...
