Laboratory activities with INCT                                                                                                 Collaborators

Sequencing and integrating transcriptomes of model plants (Arabdopsis, Setaria) subjected to drought and high temperature during bioassays.

AL4

Validate the function of plant genes identified in IDs 1 and 2 potentially involved in the mechanisms of drought tolerance in Arabidopsis, rice or sepia plants via overexpression or silencing strategies.

AL1 AL2, AL3 AL5
AL11

Generate PGMs from soy, cotton and corn via strategies of overexpression or silencing of plant genes validated in ID4 and evaluate the phenotype obtained regarding drought tolerance.

AL8 AL9 AL10

Phenotyping (greenhouse or field) maize, soy and cotton population resulting from crossing GM events identified in IDs 4 and / or 6 to obtain proof of concept of drought tolerance and / or resistance to S. frugiperda, Helicoverpa armigera or Meloidogyne spp.

AL9 AL10 AL11 AL13 E AL14

Generate PGMs from soybean, cotton and corn via strategies of overexpression or silencing of plant genes validated in ID4 and evaluate the phenotype obtained regarding drought tolerance.

Título 5

Organize, maintain and share an in vivo bank of the innovation assets obtained in the project shared by INCT members.
