Abstract/Contents:Presents a study initiated during 2010 with the primary objectives to "(1) assess the role of oxidative enzymes, specifically peroxidases, in the defense response of buffalograsses resistant to the western chinch bug," "(2) increase the genomic resources available for buffalograss using next generation sequencing technology," and "(3) identify genes differentially expressed between chinch bug-infested and noninfested buffalograsses through the use of normalized and subtracted cDNA [complementary deoxyribonucleic acid] libraries for susceptible and resistant plants." Briefly outlines methods to be used during the experiment, which is expected to "shorten the timeframe needed to identify and improve buffalograsses with superior chinch bug resistance, and, because of shared genomics among members of the grass family, may contribute to similar improvements in other grasses [grass] species."

USGA Summary Points:This research will (1) allow comparison of gene expression between resistant and susceptible buffalograsses and serve to identify genes differentially expressed in response to chinch bug feeding, (2) provide insights into the biological pathways impacted by chinch bug feeding and help elucidate plant tolerance mechanisms, and (3) facilitate development of improved buffalograsses with tolerance to chinch bugs through marker-assisted selection. This research will also shorten the timeframe needed to identify and improve buffalograsses with superior chinch bug resistance, and, because of shared genomics among members of the grass family, may contribute to similar improvements in other grasses species.
