AL 15 - Collaborator (Embrapa Soybean)
Team Leader: Francismar C. Marcelino Guimarães
In this INCT, Embrapa Soybean’s Plant Biotechnology Laboratory will act in the prospecting of genes involved in parasitism in nematodes, validation of identified genes via transient expression assays (compound soybean plants) and/or virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS), as well as resistance genes and defense mechanisms in soybean. Finally, it will assist in the molecular characterization of transformed soybean plants containing genes previously validated in model plants by AL 02 and AL 08, aiming at the identification of elite events, useful in the Genetic Improvement Program. We hope that the activities conducted at this research institute can contribute to the development of technologies for the sustainability of the soybean production chain, including genotypes adapted to different edaphoclimatic conditions and stresses that affect the crop.
Genetic and associative mapping of resistance genes to gall nematodes in soybean.
Prediction and functional characterization of genes involved in nematode parasitism.
Validate the function of plant genes potentially involved in resistance to nematodes via strategies of overexpression or silencing.
Validate the function of nematode genes potentially involved in the parasitism mechanisms, via gene silencing strategies (RNAi) in model systems.
