Research Project: Molecular Genetics Approaches to Developing Scab Resistance

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-099-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 17, 2020
End Date: May 16, 2023

The objectives of this research are to: 1) develop genetic tools for developing FHB resistant barley lines and 2) identify novel wheat genes to develop genomic resources for improving FHB resistance in wheat.

The research will conduct molecular experiments to develop tools and methods for improving FHB resistance in wheat and barley and test these genetic resources in field evaluations.
