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

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-034-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2020
End Date: May 31, 2023

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

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.
