The effect of Potato virus S infection on late blight severity in selected potato genotypes
Late blight, caused by Phytophthora infestans, is an important disease of potato. Potato cv. Defender is the only cultivar with foliar resistance to late blight. However, this cultivar exhibited susceptibility to infection ...
Rapid, Highly Sensitive and Quantitative Molecular Assays for Investigating Virus-Host and Virus-Virus Interactions using Negative-Stranded RNA Viruses as a Model System.
A highly sensitive method was developed and used for determining virus levels and to study the movement and distribution of viruses in infected plants.
Engineering artificial microRNA-based resistance against tospoviruses
Custom-designed, artificial micro-RNAs are shown to provide targeted suppression of virus replication in infected plants thereby making plants resistant to virus infections
