Research Project: Application of Biotechnology to Control of the Soybean Cyst Nematode: Disease Resistance Genes

Location: Crop Genetics Research Unit

Project Number: 6066-21220-011-06
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

1) Identify new sources of resistance and introgress resistance genes into desirable agronomic backgrounds; 2) Phenotype mapping populations for developing new DNA markers and confirm resistance.

Screen soybean germplasm using standardized methods in greenhouse assay. Phenotype mapping populations from other scientists. Evaluate for presence of DNA markers using PCR reactions for Marker assisted selection.
