De Novo Transcriptome Study Identifies Candidate Genes Involved in Resistance to Austropuccinia psidii (Myrtle Rust) in Syzygium luehmannii (Riberry)

Tobias, P.A.; Guest, David I.; Kulheim, Carsten; Park, Robert


Austropuccinia psidii, causal agent of myrtle rust, was discovered in Australia in 2010 and has since become established on a wide range of species within the family Myrtaceae. Syzygium luehmannii, endemic to Australia, is an increasingly valuable berry crop. Plants were screened for responses to A. psidii inoculation, and specific resistance, in the form of localized necrosis, was determined in 29% of individuals. To understand the molecular basis underlying this response, mRNA was sequenced...[Show more]
