Final Technical Report.


The project set out to provide virological and molecular analysis of West African transgenic rice lines of varieties ITA212 and BG90-2 from the previous DFID PSP project R6355. In bioassays, resistance to a Nigerian strain of RYMV was found to be unstable with loss of resistance over generations. Molecular analysis showed that there was selection against resistant homozygotes.
