New strategies for disease resistance to wheat stripe rust: Providing novel resistance to wheat rust disease via RNAi interference

Plain text source: 
" New strategies for disease resistance to wheat stripe rust: Providing novel resistance to wheat rust disease via RNAi interference.. New strategies to control the disease are necessary because sources of genetic resistance are limiting and easily overcome... This will give insight to the mechanisms giving rise to virulence changes in the stripe rust population in Australia, allow us to identify key virulence proteins called "effectors", and to use these effectors to identify new sources of disease resistance as they can be recognised by the host immune system...
