Project: Isolation and identification of genes in tomato involved in basal resistance against necrotrophic pathogens and in induced resistance against the necrotroph Botrytis cinerea.

project duration
01-JAN-02 – 31-OCT-04
We want to isolate and characterize genes that are specifically activated during systemic resistance against Botrytis cinerea induced by the root colonizing bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa 7NSK2. We also want to find out which genes are involved in the basal resistance against Botrytis cinerea in tomato, For this, the technique of cDNA-AFLP will be used.
