Genotyping single nucleotide polymorphisms for selection of barley β-amylase alleles


A high-throughput single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping system was developed and used to select barley seedlings carrying superior alleles of β-amylase. In the malting process, β-amylase is a key enzyme involved in the degradation of starch. Four allelic forms of the enzyme are found in barley, each exhibiting a different rate of thermal… (More)
