Durable Resistance against Phytophthora through cisgenic marker-free modification
In research project DuRPh (2006-2016), potato cultivars were developed with a durable resistance against late blight.
In the DuRPh project (2006-2016), WUR collaborated with the private sector. DuRPh was also complementary to the Phytophthora Umbrella Plan (2003-2012), funded by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation and potato growers. The DuRPh team also collaborated with the Centre for Biosystems Genomics (CBSG), a network of researchers and companies active in the field of genetics, for example to screen wild potato populations and track suitable resistance genes.
