Research Project: Developing Methods for More Efficient Wheat Transformation

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 5020-21220-014-013-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2019
End Date: Aug 31, 2023

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.

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.
