Genetic analysis of plant defense against insect eggs
B.nigra (wild mustard) plants are known to express a hypersensitive response(HR)-like necrosis when cabbage white butterflies (Pieris sp.) lay eggs on their leaves. The plant responds with a local cell death on the leaf underneath ...

Distribution and variation of downy mildew resistance genes in natural populations of wild lettuce
Lettuce downy mildew is one of the most serious diseases of lettuce (Lactuca sativa). It is caused by the oomycete Bremia lactucae, a pathogen notorious for its capability to rapidly overcome host resistance. As a result most lett ...

Comparative genomics and trait evolution of lettuce wild relatives
Description Establish a robust comparative genomics of cultivated lettuce with its wild relatives for trait and gene discovery which will benefit lettuce breeding. Lettuce breeding is faces many challenges related to pathogen resi ...

Similarities between plant immunity and self-incompatibility
Self-incompatibility (SI) is a genetic mechanism in plants to prevent inbreeding and to promote outcrossing. In the mustard family (Brassicaceae), SI is determined by two recognition determinants; the pistil receptor-like kinase S ...

Impact of trophic ecologies on the spatial distribution of nematodes in soil
Soils are among the most biodiverse and densely inhabited environments on Earth. However, there is little understanding of spatial distribution patterns of belowground biota, and this hampers progress in understanding species inte ...

Dissecting Xanthomonas black rot resistance in cabbage
Black rot, caused by the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris campestris (Xcc), is one of the most destructive diseases of cabbage. Currently grown cultivars do not provide adequate resistance, and no resistance genes have been cloned ...

Evolutionary dynamics of plant resistance genes
Plant receptor genes (RLK/Ps) underwent a dramatic expansion in comparison to many other gene families, indicating their importance for plant immunity to diverse pathogens. Gene duplication via polyploidy and small-scale local dup ...

Ecotypic variability in wild Lambs lettuce populations (Valerianella spp. L - Veldsla)
Lambs lettuce (Valerianella locusta; veldsla in Dutch) is a leafy vegetable that is often used in mixed salads. It belongs to the family Caprifoliaceae and is thus not, as suggested by its name, related to lettuce (Lactuca sativ ...
