About this project

This project assesses the influence of environmental variation on the ecological behaviour of wheat which has been genetically modified (GM) for disease-resistance traits (7 lines) in relation to non-modified wheat (5 sister lines of the GM lines and 4 other varieties). We test if GM traits have negative or positive fitness effects in different experimental environments such as low and elevated soil nitrogen or different competitive backgrounds.
