“MVCRI’s main tasks are to collect passport, phenotypic and image data of Bulgarian accessions of tomato, pepper and potato in order to contribute for creation of core-collections. The collections will be assessed for the main agronomic traits, for fruit or tuber quality traits and biotic stress resistance. Our team will validate novel traits in the three G2P-SOL crops and coordinate the second wave of pre-breeding.”
 
The G2P-SOL project (Title: Linking genetic resources, genomes and phenotypes of Solanaceous crops) has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 677379.
