Based on a growing demand on renewable energy, fast growing perennial grasses have been identified as energy crops with a high capacity in sustainable biomass production. Among these grasses, the giant reed Miscanthus x giganteus delivers one of the highest biomass yields. Despite its potential for an extended cultivation, only little is known about putative fungal pathogens that might cause biomass losses. Molecular targets that are related to fungal resistance have not been identified because… CONTINUE READING
