Research Project: Developing Tools for Genotype Independent Transformation and Gene-Editing in Cereals

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 5020-21220-014-021-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 1, 2024
End Date: Jan 31, 2025

1. Optimize protocol for genotype independent transformation of wheat and barley 2. Develop tools for gene-editing in wheat and barley

A previous NACA supported development of an efficient, genotype-independent protocol for wheat and barley transformation. This agreement will support further development of the technique and develop gene-editing tools for wheat and barley.
