Nucleotide-binding site (NBS) disease resistance genes play an integral role in defending plants from a range of pathogens and insect pests. Consequently, a number of recent studies have focused on NBS-encoding genes in molecular disease resistance breeding programmes for several important plant species. Little information, however, has been reported with… CONTINUE READING
