Research Project: Identification and Genetic Characterization of New Sources of Cotton Resistance to Root-knot and Reniform Nematode

Location: Genetics and Sustainable Agriculture Research

Project Number: 6064-21000-016-13-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 1, 2019
End Date: Dec 31, 2019

Objective:
The objective of the proposed research is to identify and characterize potential new sources of cotton resistance to root-knot and reniform nematode.

Approach:
New sources of cotton resistance to root-knot and reniform nematode will be identified among wild accessions previously identified as putatively resistant. These accessions will be genotyped with molecular markers linked to known resistance loci. Accessions that show resistance and that lack known markers will be further characterized to identify new resistance Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL).
