Research Project: Haplotype Comparisons of Soybean Looper to Investigate Migration Behavior in North America

Location: Insect Behavior and Biocontrol Research

Project Number: 6036-22000-030-60-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2018
End Date: Dec 31, 2019

Objective:
Genetic characterization of Soybean looper populations in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Puerto Rico and Bahamas to study migration patterns and the potential dispersion of a pesticide resistance trait.

Approach:
Pheromone trap collections from select locations will be analyzed by DNA sequencing for haplotype and DNA markers.
