Research Project: Application of Biotechnology to Control of the Soybean Cyst Nematode: Disease Resistance Genes

Location: Crop Genetics Research Unit

Project Number: 6066-21220-011-06
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
1) Identify new sources of resistance and introgress resistance genes into desirable agronomic backgrounds; 2) Phenotype mapping populations for developing new DNA markers and confirm resistance.

Approach:
Screen soybean germplasm using standardized methods in greenhouse assay. Phenotype mapping populations from other scientists. Evaluate for presence of DNA markers using PCR reactions for Marker assisted selection.
