Duration: 11/Jan/2016 - 01/Oct/2019

Locations: Asia / India

Donor: Government department -national- state or local,Science & Engineering Research Board- Government of India-India

CGIAR Research Program: Grain Legumes

Development of rapid diagnostic tool for identifying and quantifying S. rolfsii in chickpea. Study the variability in pathogen S. rolfsii isolates. Sequencing of ITS regions to study genotypic variability in S. rolfsii collected from different agroecological environments. Determination of physio-chemico changes associated with collar rot disease in chickpea by various biochemical assay in different genotype(s). Determination of expression profiling of PR gene(s) identified in chickpea through real-time PCR.
