Research Project: CHARACTERIZING AND IMPROVING RESISTANCE TO BROWN STEM ROT

Location: Corn Insects and Crop Genetics Research

Project Number: 3625-21220-004-22
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 16, 2011
End Date: Jun 30, 2012

Objective:
Identify genes responsible for Brown Stem Rot (BSR) resistance in resistant genotypes.

Approach:
Conduct experiments to silence candidate BSR resistance genes in a resistant genotype. Silenced plants will be infected with BSR and assayed for resistance or susceptibility.
