COST Action SUSTAIN - FA1208 - Pathogen-informed strategies for sustainable broad-spectrum crop resistance

WG2 - Plant proteins and processes targeted by effectors

Identification of central host proteins and processes in cereals and solanaceous crop plants that are targets of pathogen effectors .

- Characterisation of the plant proteins modified by pathogen effectors to gain control over plant physiology, metabolism and development.

- Investigation of the plant cellular processes manipulated by pathogen effectors to favor disease development.

- Use of pathogen effectors as probes to dissect virulence mechanisms and plant immunity.
