2022 Webinar Series: Gene silencing technologies for invasive Phragmites control

May 10 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

The fourth webinar of our 2022 series will be May 10th 10:30-11:30 AM EST.

Gene silencing technologies for invasive Phragmites control
Presented by: Dr. Ping Gong
Presentation summary: Gene silencing represents a family of biotechnologies based on the interruption or suppression of gene expression at transcriptional or translational levels. As an environmentally benign and species-specific solution, gene silencing technologies (GSTs) have a great potential of being applied to the control of invasive species such as Phragmites. This presentation will discuss recent progress made in GST development for pest species in general and summarize the R&D work carried out on Phragmites in particular by a consortium of government and academic labs.
