Research Project: Biomonitoring of Nutritional and Environmental Stress in Plants

Location: Application Technology Research

Project Number: 5082-21000-018-02-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2014
End Date: Jul 31, 2019

Objective:
To identify the protein and genetic changes during hidden hunger, and using this information, develop a technique that growers can use to test their plants for specific and/or general nutrient deficiencies.

Approach:
Proteomics techniques (i.e., identification of proteins of interest by 2-D gel analysis, followed by protein sequencing) will be used to screen for global differences in protein expression between stressed (nutrient, drought) and non-stressed plants.
