This work is being done in collaboration with scientists in Italian institutes and at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA). Ongoing studies at Purdue focus on: developing improved bioassay systems to use in finding and testing specific insect resistance genes; identifying specific genes that confer resistance on specific post-flowering pests; attempting to make interspecific crosses between wild, insect-resistant Vigna species and cultivated V. unguiculata; and the genetic transformation of cowpea, using particle-mediated and Agrobacterium-mediated gene transferSubject(s): FITOMEJORAMIENTO | VIGNA UNGUICULATA | RESISTENCIA A LAS PLAGAS | INSECTOS DANINOS | TRANSFERENCIA DE GENES | AGROBACTERIUM | BIOTECNOLOGIA | UNIVERSIDADES | ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMERICA
