Study Pinpoints an NLR Gene that Confers Partial Resistance to Rice Blast Fungus

12:00 EST 27 Nov 2019 | ISAAA

A genome-wide association study led to the identification of 27 loci linked to rice blast resistance. The results are published in the Plant Biotechnology Journal.Previous studies have shown the frequent breakdown of major resistance genes, thus rice breeding programs explored on finding new partial resistance genes against rice blast disease. Scie...
