Research Project: Targeting Root-knot and Reniform Nematode Parasitism Genes to Develop Novel Resistance in Soybean Project Number: 6406-21000-014-38
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2013

Objective:
Develop new sources of soybean resistance against root-knot and reniform nematode infection using biotechnology.

Approach:
Identify genes in the nematode whose expression can be modulated in such a way as to inhibit root-knot and reniform nematode parasitism of soybean.
