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