Project Summary

The goal of this project is to identify the QTL responsible for partial resistance to P. sojae.

Project Objectives

The research team will accomplish this goal with studies that:
1. Validate the rice method to screen for partial resistance to P. sojae.
2. Identify molecular markers linked to the QTL for partial resistance against P. sojae.
3. Identify the soybean populations with high partial resistance to P. sojae that can be used in future breeding programs.
4. Characterize resistance to P. sojae in soybean line PI 399036.
