NORFAB (NORthern FABa) is a consortium of Northern hemisphere groups with key expertise in Faba beans who aim to develop sophisticated genomics-based plant breeding methods and provide access to germplasm with the relevant genetic diversity. NORFAB aims to improve the yield and quality of faba bean seeds in order to make them a competitive protein crop in northern European and Canadian/US northern prairie conditions. Research on Faba bean genomics and genetics will be developed using new genotyping and phenotyping methodologies and new hybrid approaches combining genomic selection with QTL mapping and gene introgression. The methods for genomics-based breeding will be developed by the university partners and implemented by the industry partners involved in the project. The approach will target multigene control of seed quality, content of protein, fiber and antinutritional factors along with agronomical traits.
