SAMENVATTING
This project proposes to identify the genetic basis of the Achilles' heel of Brassica for Black Rot disease, by screening for host proteins that are manipulated by the type III effectors of Xcc. The goal is to obtain breeding leads for Black Rot disease in Brassica by identifying key host targets manipulated by Xanthomonas.
