PS Seminar Series- PhD Exit Seminar- The flax-rust AvrP protein appears to be a bifunctional effector targeting both glucose and RNA metabolism in flax

Event | Fri 22 April 2022
Rust diseases are a serious threat to cereals and other crops worldwide. The interaction between flax and the flax rust fungus, Melampsora lini, is a model pathosystem helping us to understand the molecular basis of rust fungal pathogenicity in plants.
