Research Project: Development of Molecular Markers to Identify Different Physiological Races of Pathogens Responsible for Soilborne Diseases of Alfalfa

Location: Plant Germplasm Introduction and Testing

Project Number: 2090-21000-031-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 22, 2009
End Date: Sep 21, 2014

Objective:
Identify molecular markers specific to Aphanomyces eiteiches Race 1 and 2.

Approach:
Collect fungal isolates from various geographical regions. Extract DNA from each and combine from each respective race (bulked DNA). Use RAPD, SRAP, or other primers to screen for polymorphisms specific to each race. Develop SCAR markers from sequence derived from the latter markers. Documents SCA with WSU.
