|Toelichting (Engels)||Growing world population and increased desired for independence from oil based industry is a recent challenge. Biobased economy offering solutions to this challenge and one of the potential candidate is biofuel crop is Miscanthus. Main goal of this thesis is constructing a QTL mapping by using a prediction model based on 143 different accessions of Mischanthus Sinesis with regards to cell wall composition (such as lignin, hemicellulose, and cellulose) and saccharification efficiency. Therefore, phenotyping part of the thesis will utilize both biochemical analysis and Near infrared light scanning (NIRS) prediction. Mapping population used consist of from a cross between 2 Mischanthus Sinesis parents. Ultimate goal of the thesis is helping breeding projects by the discovery of QTLs which would be used in marker assisted selection in future as a part of bio‐based economy.|
