Identify candidate proteins and genes that are responsible for aphid resistance of Rag2 gene.
Proteomics and transcriptomics research on soybean aphid infested and control tissue samples from BC4 near siogenic lines (NILs) with and without the Rag2 gene will be perfomed to identify the proteins and transcriptomes that may express differentially between NILs. Samples will be collected after 0, 2, 4, 8, 24, 48, and 72 hours after infestation with aphids. The proteins and transcriptomes that are unique to the resistant lines will be used as the candidates for further research.
