Research Project: Development of Lab-based Assays to Screen for Potato Soft Rot and Blackleg Disease Resistance

Location: Emerging Pests and Pathogens Research

Project Number: 8062-21000-048-014-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2023
End Date: Jul 31, 2024

The objective is to identify proteins and/or metabolite in wild potato tubers that correlate with soft rot disease resistance.

The cooperator will quantify the effect of potato extracts on soft rot bacteria virulence functions.
