Brief Project Summary:

The goal of this research is to develop soybean varieties with high resistance to SCN using artificial miRNA technology and to better understand the function of miRNA in soybean's resistance to SCN. The specific aims are to generate SCN resistance varieties using miRNA technology targeting a ribosomal gene that is essential for SCN survival will be made and over-expressed in soybean. The resistance of transgenic line to SCN will be examined.

The researchers will also identify miRNAs regulating soybean resistance to SCN infection. This is a powerful approach for identifying miRNAs from a variety of species. In this project, they will apply this technology to identify soybean miRNAs...

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.
