Genetic and physical mapping of a new gene for bacterial blight resistance in rice


The inheritance of resistance for bacterial blight, caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo), was studied in Minghui 63, an elite restorer line for a number of widely used rice hybrids in China. A new dominant gene against a Chinese Xoo strain JL691 in both the seedling and adult stages was identified in Minghui 63 and designated as Xa26(t). Using a… (More)
