Fire blight, caused by the necrogenic Gram-negative bacterium Erwinia amylovora, is one of the most destructive bacterial diseases of apple (Malus × domestica) and pear (Pyrus communis), among other members of the Rosaceae family. This disease poses a major economic threat to pome production as there are no available effective control measures. Genetic enhancement of fire blight resistance in apples is the best alternative for averting disease damage, loss of crop, and loss of whole trees. In… CONTINUE READING
