The aim of this study was to investigate the early events following the infection of wheat with leaf rust. An attempt was made to identify and characterize genes putatively involved in these early events. More specifically, ...
Metabolic aspects of the early response of leaf rust-infected wheat
(University of the Free State, 2008)
English: The aim of this study was to study various aspects of the defence response of wheat infected by Puccinia triticina. SSH was used to isolate differentially expressed cDNA fragments from P. triticina infected wheat. ...
The improvement of leaf rust resistance in selected bread wheat lines
(University of the Free State, 2002-11)
English: The objective of this study was not only to improve leaf rust (caused by Puccinia triticina) resistance in selected wheats (Triticum aestivum L.), but to focus on durability as well as agronomic acceptability ...
