Project: Contribution to the unraveling of mechanisms determining polygenic, sustainable (horizontal) disease resistance in poplar.
- project duration
- 01-JUL-97 – 31-DEC-99
- This study of the horizontal resistance mechanism in three Populus species and their hybrids will indicate a strategy for a development of new clones showing sustainable resistance. Computer-based HPLC analysis of phenolic plant extracts before and after infection will clarify the differences. The strength of the procedure is provided by on-line UV, ES-MS and APCI-MS monitoring of the separations.
