Novel tools for developing fusarium resistant and toxin free wheat for europe

Ziel

Fusarium fungi infect the grain of wheat and produce dangerous mycotoxins. Improving plant health using most advanced technology will solve this problem. We will develop new effective selection tools such as molecular markers for resistance genes and in-vitro selection strategies for resistant germplasm, thus accelerate resistance breeding. DNA markers for candidate resistance genes will be developed and we will characterise pathogenesis related proteins that do not only inhibit fungal growth but also mycotoxin formation. The output of this research will lead to improved high quality wheat cultivars for European farmers, thus supporting sustainable cereal production in Europe and strengthening the competitiveness of the European cereal industry on domestic and world markets. The results will lessen the risk of mycotoxin entering the feed and food chain, thus contribute significantly to a healthy diet for the consumers.
