Samenvatting

Geminiviruses are fast evolving and infect multiple crops causing dramatic yield losses worldwide. In this project, we aim to apply advanced molecular biotechnologies to clone & characterize novel tomato genes and study their associated mechanisms for resistance to geminiviruses. The genes, markers, plant materials and knowledge obtained in this project can be used to breed tomatoes (& likely other crops) with broad-spectrum and sustainable resistance against geminiviruses.
