Location: Corn Host Plant Resistance Research
Project Number: 6406-21000-013-10
Start Date: May 01, 2010
End Date: Apr 30, 2014
A panel of 300 corn inbred lines have been crossed with a common tester line. The resulting testcrosses will be evaluated for aflatoxin accumulation at locations in Texas and Mississippi. An association mapping analysis of genotypic and phenotypic data will be conducted to identify alleles associated with resistance to Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin accumulation.
