Fusarium head blight (FHB) is a destructive disease of wheat and barley. In wheat it is mainly caused by the fungal pathogens Fusarium graminearum and Fusarium culmorum. We report the identification and evaluation of candidate genes for quantitative FHB resistance. These genes showed altered expression levels in the moderately resistant winter wheat genotypes Capo and SVP72017 after inoculation with F. graminearum. Amongst others, a NPR1-like gene was identified. Sequence analysis of this gene… CONTINUE READING
