Mapping and Map-based Cloning of QTL Conferring Durable Resistance to Rice Blast towards Rice Breeding Strategy

Rice blast caused by Pyricularia oryzae (syn. Magnaporthe oryzae) is a destructive disease of rice worldwide that poses a serious threat to rice production. Strengthening blast resistance is an important objective in rice breeding programs. Race-specific resistance genes (R-genes) confer complete resistance to blast, but new races of blast pathogen can overcome it. To avoid…
