New Genomics Method Forms the Second Line of Plant Defense

Researchers at the Earlham Institute (EI), The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL) and the James Hutton Institute, have found a new way to decipher these large stretches of DNA to discover and annotate pathogen resistance in plants. “Using the PacBio, which can read longer stretches of DNA in their entirety, along with the developed NB-LRR gene workflow “RenSeq” (Resistance gene enrichment sequencing), the data not only targets R genes, but also the important regulatory regions of DNA – promoters and terminators that signal when to start making a protein and when to stop.”
