Project Summary

The goal of this proposal is to identify factors that shape the genetic diversity of P. sojae populations.

Project Objectives

1. Assess the genetic diversity of P. sojae populations in diverse environments in the US using microsatellite (SSR) analysis.
2. Evaluate if tranposons present in the P. sojae genome are active.
3. Determine if infections by more than one race of P. sojae occur in plants in the field and result in the generation of new races.
4. Determine effect of major resistant gene deployment on race structure and population dynamics of P. sojae.
