MPMI Editor’s Pick: Effectors as Tools in Disease Resistance Breeding
Pathogen effectors are molecules that contribute to virulence through suppression of host defense responses and other activities. In the March Focus Issue on Translational Research, Vleeshouwers and Oliver describe successful strategies for exploiting pathogen effectors to breed more resistant crops. This approach of turning the pathogen's own weapons against it will likely have broad application. Reading this review is essential for anyone interested in improving disease resistance in crops.
