The aim of the project was to clone the scald resistance gene Rrs1 from barley and identify more resistant barley germplasm that is not used by barley breeders... Results show that Rrs1 resides at a genome region hosting a suite of 10-14 similar genes that are candidates for resistance genes against different scald pathotypes... The aim of the research is to generate molecular tools that allow the identification of scald infection objectively (no subjective scoring) and significantly earlier than the appearance of leaf symptoms...
