Hi everyone, Thank you for your previous input on my research topic and igniting some great conversation and issues! I had another question, and that is, can anyone think of a way to show students genetic engineering in plant disease resistance? I want to show an example of how R- genes, Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR), and hypersensitive response for pathogens work! I thought with the knowledge of many of you, that maybe some interactive ideas would arise! I looked into a teaching kit or obtaining a teacher's model they would use but could not find anything... Below is also a link for a study I found from Purdue University about genetic engineering soybeans against Phytophthora Root and Stem Rot of Soybeans! The genetic editing and research that this research group did are incredible and exciting! Using designated Rsp11, a gene could mean resistance to this harmful pathogen! Using genetic markers means quicker breeding analysis and understanding of how the genes interact with the pathogen to find resistance! file:///var/mobile/Library/SMS/Attachments/03/03/19834EF1-9A3E-4C14-898C-2749900601C3/Genetic-Solution-to-Phytophthora-Root-and-Stem-Rot-of-Soybeans.ppt https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-021-26554-8
