Research Project: Improving FHB Resistance in Hard Winter Wheat by Molecular Breeding/Manipulation

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-003-99-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2014
End Date: May 31, 2017

Objective:
Improving FHB resistance in hard winter wheat by molecular breeding/manipulation.

Approach:
1) understanding how WFhb1_c1 is expressed in Fhb1-introgressing HWW lines; and 2) elucidating the regulatory component of the native WFhb1_c1 in HWW that makes it FHB-susceptible.
