Molecular markers are being increasingly used for the deployment of multiple genes for disease, quality and agronomic traits. To cost effectively utilize molecular markers, a communication and management structure between the molecular team and breeding team must be established. The needs of each group must be discussed periodically. For the effective use of markers, breeders require timely delivered accurate and reliable information. This presentation aims to outline; (1) implementation of molecular markers for the breeders’ traits, and (2) discussions about the high-throughput and logistics of marker-assisted selection (MAS) applications in a large breeding program.
