The aim of the research is to breed switchgrass, which is a biomass crop for an alternative energy, to be resistant to disease caused by Bipolaris oryzae via recurrent phenotypic selections. Also, genome-wide association with resistance to Bipolaris leaf spot will provide an in-dept view of resistance mechanism.
