Start date
2001
End date
2006
Objective
Produce multiple independent transgenic cell lines and plants of peanut by microprojectile bombardment of embryogenic tissues cultured in vitro. Test for tissue specific expression of genes driven by tissue specific gene promoters in transformed peanut. Test peanut tissues transformed with fungal resistance genes for resistance to Aspergillus flavus/parasiticus.
