James Polashock screens blueberry tissue cultures for plantlets that have transformed, or changed, their genetic makeup. These plantlets are easy to identify because they express a green fluorescent protein and glow under UV light in the procedure being used. In these transformed plantlets, the genes that respond to the fungus that causes mummy berry are likely to provide clues to resistance to the disease.
