ELUCIDATION of the genetic and molecular basis of plant disease resistance is a major objective in the investigation of plant-micro-bial interactions. Xanthomonas campestris pathovar vesicatoria (Xcv), the causal agent of bacterial spot disease of pepper and tomato, has been developed as a model host–pathogen system to study the genetic interactions that specify the expression of plant disease resistance1–6. Several plant resistance genes (Bsl, Bs2, Bs3) have been genetically characterized from… CONTINUE READING
