Project description:Transcriptional changes in greenhouse-grown plants of tomato varieties Monaymaker and Mogeor infected with Pyrenochaeta lycopersici compared to uninfected control plants. The objective of the the study was to give an insight into the establishment of compatible and incompatible interactions between tomato and the pathogen using susceptible (Moneymaker) and resistant (Mogeor) varieties of tomato. ****[PLEXdb(http://www.plexdb.org) has submitted this series at GEO on behalf of the original contributor, Justyna Anna Milc. The equivalent experiment is LE4 at PLEXdb] Overall design: genotype: Moneymaker; pathogen infection: infected(2-replications) genotype: Moneymaker; pathogen infection: uninfected(2-replications) genotype: Mogeor; pathogen infection: infected(2-replications) genotype: Mogeor; pathogen infection: uninfected(2-replications)
Project description:Pyrenochaeta lycopersici causes corky root disease of tomato. A comparative RNA-Seq-based transcriptome analysis was conducted at 96 hpi (hours post infection) on two tomato cultivars: the resistant Mogeor and its genetic background, susceptible Moneymaker to investigate the differences in their transcripts and identify the molecular bases of this plant-pathogen interaction and gain hints over resistance mechanisms.
