Objective

To develop and assess molecular diagnostic procedures for rapid, specific, and sensitive detection of new and emerging root rot pathogens in symptomatic field pea roots. To identify new sources of resistance to prevalent root rot pathogens and develop molecular markers closely linked to resistance genes for aphanomyces root rot. To develop a risk assessment tool for Fusarium species causing root rot of field pea.
