Function of Genetic Material Responsible for Disease Resistance in Plants

Part of the Progress in Botany book series (BOTANY, volume 59)


Today, the availability of recombinant DNA techniques together with advances in molecular biology and cell culture provides access to a refined understanding of the genome. Our present century is moulded by the invention of the genome structure and the subsequent use of this knowledge in genetics and its applied wing: breeding. Starting with the rediscovery of the Mendelian laws, classical segregation analysis and cytology formed the basis of scientific breeding strategies. Complete DNA sequences of many prokaryotes have been determined, the genome of yeast has been sequenced and it is expected that the base pairs of the model plant Arabidopsis will be sequenced before the end of this century. Although such a sequence analysis provides the most complete information about the genetic basis, it does not inform about the meaning and the functionality of genes. Taking into consideration the enormous size of the genome and the fact that a tremendous number of the base pairs are silent, it seems recommendable to analyse only those parts containing information.
