Researchers identify amino acid change that allows pathogens to jump from one plant to another

(Phys.org) —A research team with members from the U.K., Germany and the U.S. has identified an amino acid sequence in effector proteins in two pathogens that helps explain how a firmly established pathogen can leap from one plant to another. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes genomic research they conducted on two types of well-known plant pathogens and what it...
