Brachypodium distachyon is a pathosystem model for the study of the wheat disease rhizoctonia root rot

Schneebeli, Kathy; Mathesius, Ulrike; Watt, M


Brachypodium distachyon (Bd) is increasingly being used as a model for cereal diseases and to study cereal root architecture. Rhizoctonia solani AG 8 is a necrotrophic root pathogen that infects wheat soon after germination resulting in reduced plant growth and yield loss. Genetic resistance to R. solani AG 8 is not available in commercial wheat cultivars, although some quantitative levels of resistance have previously been found in mutant lines and grass relatives. Resistance mechanisms in...[Show more]
