Scientists working on different aspects of improving turfgrass with biotechnology share their results and hopes for the near future. They look at molecular marker analysis, biological control including endophyte strategies, genes with potential and culture and genetic engineering. Among the 20 specific topics are the genetic characterization of open-pollinated cultivars, microbial mechanisms of biological disease, analyzing heat shock response in perennial ryegrass, embryo production in orchardgrass, and herbicide-resistant transgenic creeping bentgrass.
