      we hope to use the plants own geneticts and breed plants that can reconise when the aphids are attacking them and use their own immune systems to defend themselves better

      Just like Sam said, we’re planning to use plant’s defense mechanism. But first we need to really understand how plant can defend itself against aphid, and then we can improve this trait or introduce it to other plants. We can also use aphid’s natural enemy (like ladybugs!), to get rid of the aphids or at least scare them away.
