Research Project: Genetic Engineering of Lilium Longiflorum 'nellie White' for Nematode Resistance

Location: Floral and Nursery Plants Research Unit

Project Number: 1230-21000-058-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 01, 2013
End Date: Aug 01, 2016

Objective:
The objective of this work is to develop Easter lilies that are resistant to nematodes.

Approach:
Transgenic lily lines developed previously will be tested in vitro for nematode resistance, and new nematode resistance genes will be isolated. Promising lines will be sent to the Easter Lily Foundation for further evaluation.
