  1. Matthews B, Beard H, MacDonald M, Kabir S, Youssef R, Hosseini P, et al. Engineered resistance and hypersusceptibility through functional metabolic studies of 100 genes in soybean to its major pathogen, the soybean cyst nematode. Planta. 2013;237:1337-57 pubmed publisher
    ..Overexpression of some of these genes result in a greater decrease in the number of cysts formed than recognized soybean cyst nematode resistance loci. ..
  2. Matthews B, Beard H, Brewer E, Kabir S, MacDonald M, Youssef R. Arabidopsis genes, AtNPR1, AtTGA2 and AtPR-5, confer partial resistance to soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) when overexpressed in transgenic soybean roots. BMC Plant Biol. 2014;14:96 pubmed publisher
    ..This demonstrates functional compatibility of some Arabidopsis genes with soybean and identifies genes that may be used to engineer resistance to nematodes...
