Identification and Characterization of Suppressors
Plants, like other living organisms, have evolved various mechanisms by which they usually can counter the advance of invading microbes. Functionally, these resistance mechanisms may be either constitutive (preformed) or inducible. Induced resistance mechanisms often involve gene activation.
