Next Generation Rice Disease Research

Next Generation Rice Disease Research

This Special issue covers insights and advances in basic rice biotic stress research. Specific pathosystems such as sheath blight limit rice production, specific advances in molecular rice susceptibility and resistance research.  

Guest Editors: Jonathan M. Jacobs and Guo-Liang Wang

  1. Emergence of new pathogen strains of Magnaporthe oryzae is a major reason for recurrent failure of the resistance mediated by a single resistance gene (Pi) in rice. Stacking various Pi genes in the genome through...
