Project: Production of varieties of winterbarley, resistent against Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus using non-coding viral sequences and genetic engineering.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- By introducting into the genome of barley a gene containing a defective interefering cDNA, derived from BaYDV strains, common in Europe, we will try to get BaYDV resistant plants. After dihaploidization these BaYDV-resistant plants will be used in abreeding program. BaYDV-resistant plants will not code for any viral protein.
