Webinar Pathway Studio: Using inferred pathways relations to find mechanisms associated with a plant disease
Rice blast is a fungal infection that can devastate growing crops within 7-10 days. It can survive on seeds or in soil, subsequent crops can be infected.
Despite all attempts to fight this disease, rice blast still ravages yields. The use of fungicides extends the plant's useful life, however, blast overcomes resistance within 1 to 2 growing seasons.
Analysis of rice response to blast infection can shed light on plant immunity and improve breeding decisions. This webinar will demonstrate how the utilization of Arabidopsis data in Pathway Studio helps further the understanding of rice blast defense mechanisms.
