Expression analysis of defense-related genes in Zingiber (Zingiberaceae) species with different levels of compatibility to the soft rot pathogen Pythium aphanidermatum


Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) cultivars are susceptible to soft rot disease caused by Pythium aphanidermatum. We analyzed changes in transcript levels of 41 genes in the highly susceptible ginger cultivar varada, a less susceptible wild accession (wild ginger), and a Pythium aphanidermatum-resistant relative, Z. zerumbet, following treatment with… (More)
