characterization of the transcriptome of susceptible and resistant rose species in response to powdery mildew

From the full paper: "In this study, we sequenced and assembled the transcriptome of the susceptible R. gigantea and the resistant R. longicuspis using de novo sequence assembly. The main aims ofthe study were (1) to compare the PM resistance/susceptibility mechanisms of R. gigantea and R. longicusp...

New advanced rose rosette virus research

See:
