Functional and Comparative Genomics of Disease Resistance Gene Homologs
September 23, 1999 ~ September 4, 2003
PI: Richard Michelmore
Co-PIs: Andrew Bent, Scot Hulbert, Jan Leach
Project Abstract

This project was established to study the function of NBS-LRR-encoding genes. These genes play a primary role in the detection of pathogens and the initiation of specific plant defenses. Our studies utilized in the model plant Arabidopsis, took advantage of the complete genomic sequence. In parallel, we also studied NBS-LRR encoding genes isolated from maize and rice.
