Project Summary

This project will continue to produce and evaluate genetically engineered soybeans for increased fungal resistance. The researchers will use gene silencing (RNAi) to enhance soybean cyst nematode resistance in transgenic soybean and produce phenylalanine-free corn protein in transgenic soybean to produce a nutraceutical (value-added) trait that may open new markets for Kansas' soybeans.

Project Objectives

1. Produce and evaluate genetically engineered soybeans for increased fungal resistance.
2. Use gene silencing (RNAi) to enhance soybean cyst nematode resistance in transgenic soybean.
3. Produce phenylalanine-free corn protein in transgenic soybean to produce a nutraceutical (value-added) trait that may open new markets for Kansas' soybeans.
