Investigators

Start date
2014
End date
2016
Objective

Project 1 - Molecular Genetics Approaches to Developing Scab Resistant Barley: (1) characterize transgenic barley overexpressing HvUGT13248; and (2) fine map and characterize the chromosome 6H bin 7 FHB resistance QTL.

Project 2 - Rapidly Identifying Scab Resistance Genes and Developing Scab Resistant Wheat: (1) develop elite wheat cultivars with FHB resistance; (2) characterize the accumulation of trichothecenes and trichothecene-glucoside conjugates in transgenic wheat carrying HvUGT13248; and (3) test potential trichothecene resistance genes.
