Transformation: CRT0116

Transformation Information

Transformation Name: CRT0116
Description: transformation CRT0116 to RG-PtoR
Genetic background: RG-PtoR
Project Name: Using CRISPR/Cas9 to understand and improve the plant immune system (NSF-IOS 1546625)
Description: Diseases of crop plants have major economic and environmental impacts because they decrease yields, reduce marketability of produce and require extensive pesticide applications. The overarching goal of this project is to take advantage of the natural variation present in tomato and its wild relatives along with the extensive genome sequence data available to discover new genes/loci that contribute to plant immunity. The molecular functions of these genes are then being investigated by using CRISPR/Cas9 and other molecular approaches. Our aim is to develop 150 tomato lines with CRISPR/Cas9-generated mutations in a diverse array of immunity-associated genes and to make these available to researchers for assessing the role of these genes in resistance or susceptibility to bacterial, fungal, viral, oomycete, and nematode pathogens.
