Research Project: FHB Resistance Candidate Genes from Wheatgrass

Location: Wheat Health, Genetics, and Quality Research

Project Number: 2090-21000-033-15-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2019
End Date: Jul 31, 2021

Objective:
Genetic mapping of Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) resistance genes, and development of pyramiding strategies for combining multiple resistance genes.

Approach:
Mapping FHB resistance genes and introgression into adapted backgrounds for gene pyramiding and analyzing gene interactions.
