Plant resistance to whitefly-transmitted viruses (Begomovirus and Crinivirus).

About the line

We aim to find a robust and durable natural virus resistance as a control strategy to reduce the damage caused by begomoviruses and criniviruses. Therefore, this research focus on both the resistance to the virus and to the insect vector, being essential aspects of it, to understand the genetic control, the mechanisms and molecular determinants associated with that resistance.
