Research Project: TRANSLATIONAL GENOMICS OF ONION FOR PRIORITIZED PEST RESISTANCES (WASHINGTON STATE UNIV) Project Number: 3655-21000-062-04
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 12, 2009
End Date: May 31, 2013

Objective:
Workshops will be held at regional and national Allium meetings. We will develop a mechanical transmission protocol or Iris Yellow Spot Virus and validate sources of resistance or tolerance identified in field evaluations.

Approach:
Sources of IYSV resistance or tolerance will be validated in controlled environments by mechanical inoculations. Deliver validated germplasms to private and public sector breeder. Develop workshops for public and private-sector researchers, students, and regional grower and consumer groups for onion to illustrate the usefulness of genomics to solve high-priority research goals.
