Transcriptome profiling of melaleuca quinquenervia challenged by myrtle rust reveals differences in defense responses among resistant individuals
Plants have developed complex defense mechanisms to protect themselves against pathogens. A wide-host-range fungus, Austropuccinia psidii, which has caused severe damage to ecosystems and plantations worldwide, is a major threat to Australian ecosystems dominated by members of the family Myrtaceae. In particular, the east coast wetland foundation tree species Melaleuca quinquenervia, appears to be variably susceptible to this pathogen. Understanding the molecular basis of host resistance would...[Show more]
