Project: Strategy for the development of novel resistance genes in Solanaceae

Resistance (R) genes are highly polymorphic and are among the most rapidly evolving genes in plant genomes. In this project we will analyse the dynamics of R gene evolution and diversity for Solaneceous plants, including tomato and potato.


Project: 5CFD051RP

This will enable us to develop novel strategies to decipher the codes for yet unknown resistance combinations. The project will yield novel insights that will be published in peer reviewed scientific journals and increase our knowledge about both fundamental and applied plant biology.
