Finding the resistance gene

Genetic engineering involves inserting a gene into an organism…but where is this gene found?  Watch the following presentations to learn about the process of identifying a gene that will provide resistance to oomycetes and hopefully transfer that resistance to soybean.

After you have finished watching these presentations, take the Gene Discovery quiz in the Oomycete Learning Environment.  Following the quiz, return to the Oomycete Journey of a Gene to learn about Step 2:  Transformation and Transgene Design.
