Breeding of new robust varieties with resistance to diseases remains a constant point of attention in circular agriculture where healthy plant materials (e.g. seeds) are the starting point for a good cultivation and harvest. 

The aim of this project is to obtain durable and broad spectrum resistance against newly emerging DNA and RNA viruses in tomato (with a great potential outreach to other crops).
