Isolation and manipulation of Quantitative trait loci for disease resistance in rice using a candidate gene approach

Hu, Ke-Ming; Qiu, Deyun; Shen, Xiang-Ling; Li, Xianghua; Wang, Shiping


Bacterial blight caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae and fungal blast caused by Magnaporthe grisea result in heavy production losses in rice, a main staple food for approximately 50% of the world's population. Application of host resistance to these pathogens is the most economical and environment-friendly approach to solve this problem. Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controlling quantitative resistance are valuable sources for broad-spectrum and durable disease resistance. Although large...[Show more]
