Brief Project Summary:

The general goal of this project is to uncover the mechanisms via which the virulence effectors
contribute to the development of soybean stem and root rot caused by P. Sojae. We have two
specific objectives: to identify virulence effectors and to study their functional mimicry to host
proteins that can reveal the mechanism of P. Sojaeā€™s pathogenicity.

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.
