Abstract

Plant disease resistance genes are products of long-term interaction between plants and pathogens, and they played an important role in the process of resisting the pathogens. It has great significance for screening the plant new-functional disease resistance genes and improving the efficiency of breeding for disease resistance by understanding the evolution of plant disease resistance genes. In this paper, we clarify the evolutionary mechanisms of resistance genes in sorghum by bioinformatics analysis.
