To understand the contribution of wild Solanum species to the epidemiology of potato late blight in Sweden, we characterized the resistance of the three putative alternative hosts: S. physalifolium, S. nigrum, and S. dulcamara to Phytophthora infestans, the causal agent of late blight. The pathogen sporulated in all 10 investigated S. physalifolium genotypes, suggesting susceptibility (S phenotype). Field-grown S. physalifolium was naturally infected but could regrow, though highly infected… 
Consistent risk regulation? Differences in the European regulation of food crops
Abstract In the EU legal system, there is a large difference between the procedures and requirements for the introduction of crops that are classified as genetically modified (GM) and crops not so
Tolerance and overcompensation to infection by Phytophthora infestans in the wild perennial climber Solanum dulcamara
TLDR
Investigating if different clones of Solanum dulcamara collected in the wild differ in resistance and tolerance to infection by a common European isolate of P. infestans concluded that in S. dul camara there are indications of genetic variation for both resistance andolerance to P.infestans infection.
