Find new quantitative trait loci associated with partial resistance to Phytophthora sojae in soybean
David Lee, Wheaton College
David worked to sequence the resistance-breaking isolates of RYMV and compare their sequences to those of other isolates. He also worked to sequence MDMV-It and compare its sequence with those of non-resistance-breaking isolates from Ohio. Eventually, the results of these projects will lead to greater understanding of how changes in the genomes of these viruses allow them to break through established resistances.
Aimee Thompson, Hiram College
Aimee worked with graduate student Valdir Correa to characterize Stolbur phytoplasma genetic variability and phytoplasma-host interactions. She also worked on a method to co-culture phytoplasmas in vitro using Drosophila S2 cells.
Geoff Harper, Case Western University
Geoff worked with the soybean aphid(Aphis glycines) and transmission of three soybean viruses.
Cameron R. T. Exnor, Carnegie Mellon
Cameron worked on the characterization of the mechanism of persistence of Pantoea stewartii in its insect vector.
