Project: Identification of regulatory factors involved in inducing plant defense respons during pathogen interaction.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- The present project is concerned with the identification of the plant genes whose encoded products participate in the transduction pathway activated in response to microbial attack. To achieve this goal a combination of genetic, biochemical and molecular biology strategies will be followed. Mutants of arabidopsis thaliana plants will be obtaines in which the expression patterns of the plant defense genes will be modified.
