1) Identify new sources of resistance and introgress resistance genes into desirable agronomic backgrounds; 2) Phenotype mapping populations for developing new DNA markers and confirm resistance.
Screen soybean germplasm using standardized methods in greenhouse assay. Phenotype mapping populations from other scientists. Evaluate for presence of DNA markers using Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) reactions for Marker assisted selection.
