Research Project: Developing Methods for More Efficient Wheat Transformation

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 5020-21220-019-13-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

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

Objective:
1. Develop an efficient Agrobacterium-based wheat transformation and regeneration protocol. 2. Once the protocol is optimized, establish routine protocols and processes for transformation to support Cooperator and ARS research needs.

Approach:
The cooperator will develop and optimize a protocol for transforming and regenerating transgenic wheat plants. They will then scale-up this procedure so that it will be possible to generate the numbers of transgenic plants required for Cooperator and ARS wheat research.
