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

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

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).
