Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Feb 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2013
Develop new sources of soybean resistance against root-knot and reniform nematode infection using biotechnology.
Identify genes in the nematode whose expression can be modulated in such a way as to inhibit root-knot and reniform nematode parasitism of soybean.
