A genome scan using a large number of SNP markers will be used to identify markers associated with the resistant phenotype. Crosses of resistant and susceptible lines will be developed and evaluated. We will use techniqes of Meihls et al. (2008) and Lefko et al. (2008) to develop a set of resistant colonies in both Ames and Columbia. We hope to be able to evaluate for cross resistance between Cry3Bb1 resistance and Cry34Ab1 + Cry35Ab1 resistance. This will depend on successful MTAs, but Syngenta has already agreed that we can evaluate for cross resistance between MIR 604 resistance and resistance to Event 5307.
