End Date: Aug 14, 2024
The objectives of this cooperative research are 1) to isolate the genetic elements essential for wheat aluminum resistance; 2) to examine the genetic and molecular basis underlying their functions in wheat, and 3) to develop wheat cultivars with improved quality traits.
The approaches include using molecular, biochemical, and genetic tools for gene isolation and functional analysis and using traditional breeding and genetic strategies for developing aluminum-resistant wheat cultivars.
