Defense Genes in Tomato, Paperback / softback Book


Plant defence against disease-causing organisms usually follows three steps: pathogen recognition, signal transduction and the resistance response.

In tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum), a myriad of R-genes provide resistance against viruses, bacteria, fungi and insects that counterattack with their corresponding avirulence or avr genes.

R-genes have been characterised over the years and classified into four classes: TNA, CNA, RAP/RAK and miscellaneous.

This book reviews these different defense genes and the recent advances associated with them.
