Research Project: Mechanisms of Ammonium Sencing and Ammonium Suppression of DON Biosynthesis

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-34-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2020
End Date: May 31, 2021

Objective:
The objective of this research is to analyze the association between ammonium sensing and the reduction of DON production.

Approach:
The researcher will conduct assays and experiments to determine the relationship between ammonium sensning and the reduction of DON production. The inhibition of DON production can be used as a form of control for Fusarium graminearum to avoid DON contamination.
