The overall goal of this project is to use RNA interference (RNAi) to reduce aflatoxin in peanut seeds. The research is divided in two parts, one is the study of genetic diversity of aflatoxigenic Aspergillus species funded by PMIL, and the other is the genetic transformation of peanut plants using RNA interference that is funded by NBCRI.
