Objective
1) Screen transgenic walnut lines expressing shRNA for resistance to Cherry leaf roll virus (CLRV). 2) Identify recessive alleles that can confer resistance to CLRV in J. regia. 3) Clone two eIf4E genes identified in J. regia transcriptome and evaluate their interaction with VPg of CLRV. 4) Edit the eIF4E in walnuts using CRISPR system.
