Research Project: Use of a Chimeric Gene for Transgenic Resistance to Hessian Fly

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 5020-22000-018-05
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 01, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2014

Objective:
The objective is to transform wheat with a chimeric gene for transgenic resistance to the Hessian fly.

Approach:
The chimeric construct will be used to transform wheat for potential transgenic resistance to Hessian fly and other major insect pests of wheat (i.e. greenbug, Russian wheat aphid).
