The aim of the study was to find resistant accessions within Brassicaceae to Phoma lingam and to evaluate whether resistance could be expressed on protoplast or cellular level in presence of the toxin, sirodesmin PL. A gene transfer system was designed, for transfer of genes for resistance to B. napus via protoplast fusions, using the toxin as a selective agent in the screening for resistant hybrid cells.
