This five year research project (LK09124) will develop and apply state-of-the-art genomic and metabolomic tools for oat genetic improvement. Focus is on the understanding and manipulation of key traits that will enhance the value of oats in human health improvement, capitalise on the value of oats as a low input cereal, increase the environmental and economic sustainability of cereal based rotations, realise the potential of oats as a high value animal feed and develop new opportunities for using oats through advanced fractionation.
