Brief Project Summary:

As the most destructive pest disease for soybean, soybean cyst nematodes (SCN) cost is huge each year. This project will generate a SCN resistant soybean variety using the artificial miRNA and short hairpin RNAi, which are the next generation RNAi technologies. This project will identify the important regulator controlling soybean's responses to SCN infection and lead to a better understanding of mechanisms used by soybean to fight against SCN.

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
