APSA-NSTDA Project - Screening of TNRV and CaCV-resistant sources in pepper germplasm January 18 - March 31, 2021

Screening of TNRV & CaCV-Resistant Sources in Pepper Germplasm

We are pleased to announce the registration open for a collaboration project title “Screening of Tomato necrotic ringspot virus (TNRV) and Capsicum chlorosis virus (CaCV)-resistant sources in pepper germplasm” led by Dr. Channarong Seepiban and his team from the National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC), NSTDA.

The total project duration is 2.5 years to screen for CaCV and/or TNRV-resistance sources in pepper germplasm using mechanical inoculation protocol in greenhouse condition and to evaluate sources of resistance to TNRV and/or CaCV using thrips inoculation in greenhouse condition. Germplasms used in this study are from universities in Thailand, World Vegetable Center and New Mexico State University, USA. 

The participated companies will receive below benefits;

  1. Report will be shared to participating companies which will also include the  virus screening technique. (The report will be shared to the public only after 3 years the project is completed and the virus screening technique will be shared to participating companies only)

  2. The companies located in Thailand are eligible to request the germplasms showing TNRV and CaCV resistance/tolerance from the universities in Thailand and the New Mexico State University.

  3. The companies locate outside Thailand will only eligible to request the germplasms showing TNRV and CaCV resistance from the New Mexico State University.

Terms and condition to request the resistant germplasms and MTA are dependent on the owner of the germplasm which is not covered in this project.

​Under the memorandum of National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and APSA, NSTDA has provided 50% budget contribution to this project. Companies joining this project therefore will only pay 50% of the total budget as shown in the project summary.
