Project Description

Molecular characterisation of mushroom viruses and development of transgenic resistance.
Isolation and characterisation of genes induced or up-regulated upon pathogen attack in the cultivated mushroom, Agaricus bisporus. Molecular characterisation of mushroom viruses and development of transgenic resistance. Molecular characterisation of new and unusual plant viruses; the isolation and analysis of naturally occurring plant virus resistance genes and the development of novel protection against plant viruses using transgenic techniques.
