Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Three accessions of Medicago truncatula were identified showing different degrees of resistance to Therioaphis trifolii through three resistance modalities... The objectives of the project were to identify the genetic basis and to decipher the defence mechanisms of resistance to T. trifolii in M. truncatula ... The results of the research will provide valuable resources to determine the molecular basis of plant recognition and signalling in response to aphid feeding, and will also be important in identifying key factors involved in aphid virulence and host resistance...

" Understanding the molecular basis for desiccation tolerance of rhizobia for improved survival on seed.. Survival of rhizobia can be poor and varies depending on the rhizobial strain and inoculant formulation... The project will engage with Professor Philip Poole, an expert in rhizobial molecular physiology at the John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK. Professor Poole will facilitate training of project personnel in established techniques for isolation of mRNA from rhizobia and subsequent micro-array analysis...
