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

WG4 - Immune receptors and allelic variants of host targets for resistance breeding and engineering

Tranfer of knowledge for breeding for sustainable and broad-spectrum crop resistance in cereals and solanaceous plants.

- Screening of crop germplasm collections and breeding material by effectoromics for broad-spectrum resistance receptors that recognize central effectors.

- Screening for insensitive alleles of central effector targets.

- Generation of immune receptors with extended recognition specificities and insensitive variants of central effector targets.
