In this study, four recombinant inbred line (RIL) soybean populations were screened for their response to infection by Pythium sylvaticum, Pythium irregulare, Pythium oopapillum, and Pythium torulosum. The parents, PI 424237A, PI 424237B, PI 408097, and PI 408029, had higher levels of resistance to these species in a preliminary screening and were crossed with “Williams,” a susceptible cultivar. A modified seed rot assay was used to evaluate RIL populations for their response to specific Pythium species selected for a particular population based on preliminary screenings. Over 2500 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers were used to construct chromosomal maps to identify regions associated with resistance to Pythium species. Several minor and large effect quantitative disease resistance loci (QDRL) were identified including one large effect QDRL on chromosome 8 in the population of PI 408097 × Williams. It was identified by two different disease reaction traits in P. sylvaticum, P. irregulare, and P. torulosum. Another large effect QDRL was identified on chromosome 6 in the population of PI 408029 × Williams, and conferred resistance to P. sylvaticum and P. irregulare. These large effect QDRL will contribute toward the development of improved soybean cultivars with higher levels of resistance to these common soil-borne pathogens.

Growth Analyses and Patterns of Cross-Resistance in Four Imidazolinone-Resistant Smooth Pigweed (Amaranthus hybridus) Populations Poston, Daniel Hasford (Virginia Tech, 1999-09-28)Studies were conducted in 1996 through 1999 to: (1) evaluate the responses of one imidazolinone (IMI)-susceptible (S) and four -resistant (R1, R2, R3, and R4) smooth pigweed populations to various acetolactate synthase ...
Approaches to blister beetle control on millet: Botanical and biological agents, associational resistance, varietal resistance, and light and pheromone traps Touré, G. K.; Edwards, R. C.; Traoré, S. H. (Blacksburg, VA: Office of International Research and Development, Virginia Tech, 1999)Several approaches to management of insect pests of pearl millet (Pennisetum americum) were compared in on-farm trials in four villages in north central Mali. Light traps were used for assessment of insect pest populations, ...
“Where We Are, Resistance Lives”: Black Women, Social Media, and Everyday Resistance in Higher Education Stewart, Terah J. (Journal Committed to Social Change on Race and Ethnicity, 2019-12-11)The discourse about activism (and problematic conflations with resistance) typically offer comparisons to the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement, examine first and second wave feminism, and situate apathy and fatigue as opposite ...
