Not so new gene discovery

Tuesday, 04 December 2012

In reaction to a blog post on the discovery of genes for resistance to black Sigatoka in Calcutta 4, Rodomiro Ortiz of the Dept. Plant Breeding and Biotechnology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences reflects on a similar discovery two decades ago. It's also worth mentioning that black Sigatoka (black leaf streak) is not present in India, as the original blog post suggests.
