Lily Tamburic-Ilincic

Fusarium resistance and genetics; deoxynivalenol (DON) tolerance; winter wheat


Research Interests Related to this Project:

Dr. Tamburic-Ilincic studies the identification and development of winter wheat germplasm and lines with resistance to fusarium head blight (FHB) and tolerance to deoxynivalenol (DON).  She's also interested in pyramiding FHB genes from different sources of resistance using conventional breeding and biotechnology, development and characterization of winter wheat populations for FHB resistance for molecular marker studies, variety responses to FHB resistance and tolerance to DON in winter wheat (Performance, Registration, and NUWWSN tests) and spring cereals, leaf diseases in cereals and their management, and annual survey of Fusarium spp. and DON level in cereals in Ontario.  In addition, she is currently studying differences in aggressiveness and DON production of isolates of Fusarium graminearum, screening and developing soft pasty and hard red bread winter wheat, and evaluating winter wheat for Southwestern Ontario.
