Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Dec 01, 2013
DNA vectors will be designed for transformation of DNA fragments into soybean to control the soybean cyst nematode (SCN) so that it will not grow or will not complete its life cycle. The transformed soybean roots will be tested to determine the effect of the DNA fragments on SCN vigor.
