Engineering disease resistance through basic research

Watch Now

In this presentation, Xinnian Dong discusses how to engineer disease resistance in crops, while also minimizing the associated yield penalty. 

She describes how her labs work showed that plants use the circadian clock to gate the immune responses and control translation of defence proteins to avoid interference with growth-related activities.
