Genetics science fair project:
Genetic and Pathogenic Variation among Ascochyta rabiei (a chickpea disease)

Science Fair Project Information
Title: Assessment of Genetic and Pathogenic Variation among Ascochyta rabiei (a chickpea disease)
Subject: Genetics
Grade level: Middle School - Grades 7-9
Academic Level: Advanced
Project Type: Experimental
Cost: High
Awards: 1st place, Canada Wide Virtual Science Fair ($300)
Affiliation: Canada Wide Virtual Science Fair (VSF)
Year: 2009
Description: The main goals of this project were to evaluate genetic diversity among a few isolates of A. rabiei collected from Canada, Syria, Israel and USA using Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) molecular marker; to compare pathogenicity of these isolates on susceptible chickpea cultivar; to determine the relationship between the genotypes and pathotypes of these isolates. Materials and techniques used: SSR primers, DNA polymerase, PCR, NTSYS software.
