A study of transcript profiling of soybean roots during nitrogen fixing symbiosis
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Nodulation is a symbiotic association between a host plant and its bacterium. The result of this interaction is the formation of a novel organ, the ...
Molecular characterization of genetic resistance to soybean cyst nematode in soybean line SS97-6946
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) (Heterodera glycine) is the most damaging pest of soybean and estimated annual yield losses are 1.5 billion dollars in USA. Breeding resistant cultivars is the most efficient means to control ...
Innate immunity in Arabidopsis: molecular mechanisms of HOPA1 and AVRRS4 - specific disease resistance signaling pathways
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
Plants have evolved several layers of predetermined defenses, collectively called the innate immune system. Because of its effectiveness effector-triggered immunity (ETI) is a highly valuable agronomic trait. However, ETI ...
