Quantification of Ralstonia solanacearum Colonization of Potato Germplasm Using Luminescence
Authors:  Andrea Paola Zuluaga, Núria S. Coll and Marc Valls, date: 05/05/2015, view: 9032, Q&A: 0
We have developed an unsophisticated, non-disruptive and accurate method for evaluation of pathogen colonization in planta. In this protocol we use a Ralstonia solanacearum (R. solanacearum) UY031 strain genetically ...
