Project Number: 6034-21000-014-02-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Dec 1, 2010
End Date: Sep 30, 2015
Evaluate array of Poncirus hybrids and standard cultivars to ultimately identify which genes are associated for use in conventional and transgenic plant improvement.
Plant replicated trial with 8 plants of each of numerous citranges (from a well-characterized mapping population), other poncirus hybrids and standard cultivars. Material will be at USDA/ARS Picos Farm where HLB and ACP are rampant and will be screened in response to natural exposure.
