About This Project
P. cinnamomi destroys natural plant communities across the globe. We are developing a study aiming to understand the mechanisms of resistance to this pathogen in a resistant host, the japanese chestnut, using three different approches: transcriptomics, linkage mapping and hispathology of infection. The final goal is to identify candidate genes, pathways and markers linked with the resistance, for future genome selection of improved genetic materials
