The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in South Dakota winter wheat cultivars, 2) field screen adapted winter wheat lines exhibiting FHB resistance, 3) use genomic approaches to improve and optimize breeding for FHB resistance and 4) develop a resource for characterization of FHB resistance genes.
The researcher will conduct traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in winter wheat for the state of South Dakota as well as lab experiments for gene characterization.
