    Rice resistance responses to the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne graminicola

    Meloidogyne graminicola is responsible for production losses in rice (Oryza sativa) in Asia and Latin America. Petitot et al. assess the cytological and molecular mechanisms underlying nematode resistance identified in African rice (Oryza glaberrima). Rice resistance responses act at several steps along the nematode life-cycle to limit penetration and feeding site development, preventing efficient nematode […] More
