RNAi Increases Soybean's Resistance to Viral Pathogens

13:00 EDT 6 Sep 2017 | ISAAA

Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) and other viral pathogens harm soybean production and often lead to significant yield loss and quality deterioration. Thus, scientists from Jilin Academy of Agricultural Sciences in China used RNAi-mediated silencing to control SMV. Their study is published in Transgenic Research. The researchers isolated a replicase gene...
