Brief Project Summary:

Pathogen caused Soybean Diseases result in large economic losses to soybean growers. Soybean bacterial blight is one of the most common diseases of soybeans that can cause up to 20% yield loss. Understanding the intricate interactions between the pathogen and the host is a key step towards soybean disease control. This project will apply a structure-based computational method for mimicry protein search in Pseudomonas syringe pv. Glycines (Psg), the causal agent for bacterial blight in soybeans. Mimicry refers to the phenomenon where a pathogen produces a protein that mimics the function of the protein in the host plant so that it can manipulate the host physiology and cellular function...

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.
