TSL submits application to DEFRA for approval to carry out a field trial on GM Potatoes
The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL) has applied to the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for permission to carry out a field trial on genetically modified potatoes on the Norwich Research Park between 2017 and 2020.
TSL Scientists identify novel regulatory mechanism that controls how plants defend themselves against pathogens
Work from the Zipfel group reveals how a class of endogenous plant peptides and their corresponding receptor regulate plant immune responses.
Forming a second line of plant defence – capturing disease-resistant DNA
Scientists have developed a new improved method for capturing longer DNA fragments, doubling the size that can be analysed for novel genes which provide plants with immunity to disease.
Plants take it all in to deal with bacteria
Research reveals that plant immune receptors, along with the ligand that activates them, must be taken up inside the plant cell in order to mount a full immune response to bacterial infection.
