Research Project: Molecular Detection and Quantification of Fusarium oxysporum Vascular Wilt Pathogens

Location: Crop Improvement and Protection Research

Project Number: 2038-22000-016-027-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Nov 1, 2018
End Date: Aug 31, 2021

The objective of the project is to develop a systematic approach for designing molecular markers for the detection and identification of different formae speciales of F. oxysporum.

Next generation sequencing technology will be used to generate a dataset of genomic sequences that can be used in a computer pipeline that identifies unique sequences that can be targeted for diagnostic marker development.
