  • Henry and Sylvia Richardson Research Incentive Grant | Department of Entomology
    Associates Awards and Scholarships for Graduate Students Henry and Sylvia Richardson Research Incentive Grant The purpose of the Henry and Sylvia Richardson Research Incentive Grant is to encourage research experiences beyond those available in the student s degree program Research in a lab other than that of the major professor on a project that complements the student s degree program is particularly encouraged Proposals to fund research beyond the student s degree program will be favored but this criterion is not necessary for submission The form of the award will be department operational support for the student s research One award is available each year The amount of the award varies depending on the interest earned from the endowment All graduate students within the Department of Entomology who have not yet completed their degree research and who will remain as resident graduate students for the duration of the award are eligible to apply A student may only receive the award once unless they enroll for a second degree at ISU The research proposals should be almost entirely a product of the individual student i e not that of a faculty committee or graduate advisor Applications should adhere to the following format a Title page Title Full name School address and telephone Major department Last degree awarded and date Present degree objective b Abstract not to exceed 250 words c Statement of significance of research and how the research complements the student s degree program d Introduction including review of relevant literature e Objectives general and specific f Methods g Literature cited not more than 15 references h Budget and Justification not to exceed 1 page i CV including name of major professor not to exceed 2 pages Sections b g should not exceed 6 pages double spaced All pages should

  • Characterization of field evolved resistance to Bt corn in fall armyworm and western corn rootworm. | Department of Entomology
    corn by western corn rootworm a tough management challenge Piecing together patterns of western corn rootworm movement Aubrey R Paolino Dr Wilbur D Guthrie Characterization of field evolved resistance to Bt corn in fall armyworm and western corn rootworm Monday February 2 2015 16 10 Event Type Seminar Dr Siva R M Jakka from Iowa State University s Department of Entomology will be presenting this research as a part of the spring semester seminar series This seminar will be located in E164 Lagomarcino Hall Abstract Transgenic Bt corn hybrids expressing insecticidal toxins from Bacillus thuringiensis Bt have been increasingly planted to manage insect pests The high adoption of Bt based insecticidal technologies increases selection pressure for the evolution of resistance in insect populations Development of field evolved resistance was reported in fall armyworm Spodoptera frugiperda J E Smith to Cry1Fa in cornfields in Puerto Rico and in western corn rootworm Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte to Cry3Bb1 in cornfields in Iowa My research has been focused on the characterization of Bt resistance in fall armyworm and western corn rootworm to Bt corn hybrids Our laboratory experiments indicated h igh levels of resistance to Cry1Fa in fall armyworm with recessive and autosomal mode inheritance Cross resistance studies with resistance larvae showed reduced susceptibility to Cry1Ab and Cry1Ac toxins and no cross resistance to Cry1Ca toxin and Bt formulations The lack of fitness costs in resistant fall armyworm was also supported by stable resistance Binding experiments showed the modification of a common Cry1Fa Cry1A toxin binding site is responsible for Bt resistance in fall armyworm Comparison of receptor protein levels revealed reduced alkaline phosphatase ALP levels in resistant larvae and this reduced expression of ALP phenotype was linked to Cry1Fa resistance in fall armyworm Bioassay results of western corn rootworm indicated high levels
