Evogene (EVGN) announces that after achieving positive results, its corn disease resistance
research collaboration with the Crop Science Division of Bayer (BAYRY) is being refocused on the identification of genome editing targets for evaluation against a broad range of corn diseases.
For the first time, the research team has identified specific locations called 'loci,' within a plant's chromosomes which impart disease resistance
to their offspring, by undergoing a reversible biochemical modification known as DNA methylation, in response to a pathogen attack.
At the Noble Research Institute, Mysore's team works to find disease resistance
genes in plants to help reduce crop plant losses.
The variety Invicta has good disease resistance
to American gooseberry mildew and it holds an Award of Garden Merit from the RHS.
A spokesman of agriculture extension department told reporter here Saturday that the growers should cultivate approved varieties of Karela as these have better disease resistance
in addition to provide maximum production.
It sells 24 plants for PS11.99 and describes them as strong growing and resilient "with better disease resistance
than we've ever seen".
It sells batches of 24 and describes them as strong growing and resilient "with better disease resistance
than we've ever seen".
For disease resistance
, this meant tossing out any plants that showed powdery mildew or downy mildew infections at the seedling stage during the first year of growth.
Phil research seminars on the topics 'Genome-wide Identification, Phylogeny and Plant Disease Resistance
Analysis of Cyclic Nucleotide Gated Ion Channel (CNGC) Gene Family in Eggplant' and 'Isolation, Identification and Characterization of Tomato Fungal pathogens in District Kamber Shahdadkot' respectively, under the supervision of Dr.
Other topics of the 28 contributions include the barberry eradication program in Minnesota for stem rust control, plant genome editing for disease resistance
, the endosymbionts of plant-parasitic nematodes, and a systems framework to address grand challenges in plant pathology.
The app currently contains 289 rice varieties including their agronomic characteristics, pest and disease resistance
and grain quality.
