1. The effectiveness of hairpin RNA (inverted repeat) constructs that target iaaM will be compared to the opposing-promoter constructs which conferred crown gall resistance to 12% of the transgenic apple trees produced during phase I studies. Although not critical, a higher success rate will aid in the introduction of the gall-resistance trait i...
