Transgenic crops are now grown commercially in 25 countries worldwide. Although pathogens represent major constraints for the growth of many crops, only a tiny proportion of these transgenic crops carry disease resistance traits. Nevertheless, transgenic disease-resistant plants represent approximately 10% of the total number of approved field trials in North America, a proportion that has remained constant for 15 years. In this review, we explore the socioeconomic and biological reasons for… 
Strategies for Viral Disease Resistance in Crop Plants
TLDR
This overview is an update on the different strategies used to improve crops against viral diseases and focuses on novel strategies that utilize the multigene concept for virus control.
Engineered resistance against filamentous pathogens in Solanum tuberosum
TLDR
The current scenario and potential of the molecular approaches to improve resistance against filamentous pathogens in potato are highlighted.

TLDR
This review focuses on recent advances in those technologies which adapt the knowledge obtained using molecular genetic approaches for the study of plant-microbe interactions to combat plant diseases.
How to effectively deploy plant resistances to pests and pathogens in crop breeding
TLDR
Recent findings on how plants respond to their pathogens and pests are summarized and resistance mechanisms are discussed in three categories based on differences in spectrum, durability and evolution.
Viral, Fungal and Bacterial Disease Resistance in Transgenic Plants
TLDR
Advancement in plant transformation techniques enables transferring useful genes for the rational creation of disease-resistant plants and their resistant to viral, fungal and bacterial pathogens are described.
Biotechnological approaches for engineering resistance against viruses in plants.
TLDR
Current strategies for developing resistance in plants against viruses are described, including role of proteinand nucleic acidmediated resistance to generate pathogen-derived resistance, and importance of the genes of host plant origin, plant’s hormone and ribosome inactivating proteins for virus resistance are discussed.
Gene Technology Protecting Crops from Pathogens: Novel Approaches to An Old Problem
  • S. Xiao

  • 2017
TLDR
Protecting crops from pathogens presents a constant challenge in agriculture because defense mechanisms of plants against microbial invasion are highly conserved across species, various pathogens readily become experts in abrogating this immune system.
Plant Pathogen Interactions: Crop Improvement Under Adverse Conditions
TLDR
This chapter describes the recent molecular aspects of plant–pathogen interactions focusing on the nonhost resistance components and strategies like specific regulation of induced defense responses, manipulation of susceptibility factors, and host-induced gene silencing (HIGS) are discussed.
Populational survey of arthropods on transgenic common bean expressing the rep gene from Bean golden mosaic virus.
TLDR
Effect of a common bean virus resistant line modified for resistance against Bean golden mosaic virus by expressing a mutated REP protein is evaluated, indicating that the relative abundance of species are similar in transgenic and non-transgenic fields.

Engineering Pathogen Resistance in Crop Plants
TLDR
The diseases caused by plant viruses are being thwarted through the initiation of endogenous RNA silencing mechanisms, and many of these strategies show great promise, some limitations, and exciting opportunities to develop many new tools for combating plant pests.
TRANSGENIC APPROACHES TO CONTROL EPIDEMIC SPREAD OF DISEASES
TLDR
First results of field trials with plants expressing antifungal proteins indicate that levels of resistance are high enough to be commercially interesting, and strategies for fungus resistance have been explored based on the induction by pathogens of cell death at the site of infection.
Strategies for antiviral resistance in transgenic plants.
TLDR
Apart from the majority of pathogen-derived resistance strategies, alternative strategies involving virus-specific antibodies have been successfully applied and efforts to combat viroids in transgenic plants are highlighted.
Engineering resistance to geminiviruses--review and perspectives.
TLDR
A better understanding of geminivirus gene and protein functions, as well as the native immune system which protects plants against viruses, will allow us to develop novel tools to expand the current capacity to stabilize crop production in geminvirus epidemic zones.
Engineering plants with increased disease resistance: what are we going to express?
Higher copy numbers of the potato RB transgene correspond to enhanced transcript and late blight resistance levels.
TLDR
The effects of the RB transgene on foliar late blight resistance in transgenic cultivated potato under field production conditions are examined and suggest resistance-gene transcript levels may have to surpass a threshold before triggering RNA silencing.
Performance of Transgenic Potato Containing the Late Blight Resistance Gene RB.
TLDR
A major late blight resistance gene, called RB, previously was identified in the wild potato species Solanum bulbocastanum through map-based cloning has been integrated into cultivated potato (S. tuberosum) using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation but no significant effect on tuber size or yield was detected.
Maize streak virus-resistant transgenic maize: a first for Africa.
TLDR
The mutated MSV replication-associated protein gene that was used to transform maize showed stable expression to the fourth generation and is reported to be the first maize to be developed with transgenic MSV resistance and the first all-African-produced genetically modified crop plant.
The expression of a bean PGIP in transgenic wheat confers increased resistance to the fungal pathogen Bipolaris sorokiniana.
TLDR
The results illustrate the feasibility of improving wheat's defenses against pathogens by expression of proteins with new capabilities to counteract those produced by the pathogens.
Safety of virus-resistant transgenic plants two decades after their introduction: lessons from realistic field risk assessment studies.
TLDR
This review focuses on safety assessment with a special emphasis on crops that have been commercialized or extensively tested in the field such as squash, papaya, plum, grape, and sugar beet, and recommends realistic risk assessment approaches to assist their timely deregulation and release.
