  • Publication number: 20200291420
    Abstract: The field is related to plant breeding and methods of identifying and selecting plants with resistance to southern corn rust. Provided are methods to identify novel genes that encode proteins providing plant resistance to southern corn rust and uses thereof. These disease resistant genes are useful in the production of resistant plants through breeding, transgenic modification, or genome editing.

  • Publication number: 20200231982
    Abstract: Compositions and methods useful in identifying and counter-selecting maize plants with having enhanced yield-related traits relative to control plants under abiotic stress conditions such as salt stress and/or drought are provided herein. The methods use molecular genetic markers to identify, select and/or construct salt stress tolerant and/or drought tolerant maize plants. Also provided are methods to enhance tolerance to salt stress and/or drought in crop plants by transforming crop plants with the Zea mays antiporter/sodium ion transporter or by introducing favorable allelic variants of the Zea mays antiporter/sodium ion transporter gene via gene editing.

  • Publication number: 20180112280
    Abstract: This invention relates to polynucleotide sequences encoding a gene that can confer resistance to the plant pathogen Colletotrichum, which causes anthracnose stalk rot, leaf blight and top dieback in corn and other cereals. It further relates to plants and seeds of plants carrying chimeric genes comprising said polynucleotide sequences, which enhance or confer resistance to the plant pathogen Colletotrichum, and processes of making said plants and seeds. The invention further presents sequences that can be used as molecular markers that in turn can be used to identify the region of interest in corn lines resulting from new crosses and to quickly and efficiently introgress the gene from corn lines carrying said gene into other corn lines that do not carry said gene, in order to make them resistant to Colletotrichum and resistant to stalk rot.
