Investigating the role of dicer 2 (dcr2) in gene silencing and the regulation of mycoviruses in Botrytis cinerea

Abstract

Botrytis cinerea, the fungus causing gray mould disease, is usually controlled by cultural and chemical methods. It would be interesting to see if mycoviruses were a feasible method for reducing fungal virulence thus controlling the disease, but first more has to be understood of the RNA silencing mechanism and whether mycoviruses can combat such defences… (More)
