Research Project: MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION AND FUNCTIONAL DETERMINATION OF PD RESISTANCE GENES IN GRAPES

Location: Crop Diseases, Pests and Genetics

Project Number: 5302-22000-010-02
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 30, 2009
End Date: Sep 30, 2013

Objective:
1. Identification of PD resistance genes in Vitis species. 2. Molecular determination PD resistance mechanisms.

Approach:
1. Identify candidate R genes from microarray global gene expression analyses. 2. Cloning and molecular characterization of target genes using in vitro expression system. 3. Develop R gene molecular markers for marker-assisted selection.
