Project Summary

The goal of this project is to identify the quantitative trait loci (QTL) responsible for partial resistance to Phytophthora sojae.

Project Objectives

1. Validating the rice method to screen for partial resistance to P. sojae.
2. Identifying molecular markers linked to the QTL for partial resistance against P. sojae.
3. Identifying the soybean populations with high partial resistance to P. sojae that can be used in future breeding programs.
