GenoPOM-pro

The project GenoPOM-pro aims at the improvement of the tomato industry through the use of innovative approaches based on recent developments in the tomato genome studies. CNR-IPSP-Bari will be directly involved in the research activity ” Identification and functional characterization of tomato genes involved in defense responses to viral infections”, aiming to pursuing the following objectives:

• Identification and functional characterization of tomato genes involved in defense responses to CMV and other plant pathogenic viruses;

• Discovery, through a TILLING platform, of mutant tomato genotypes characterized by useful levels of resistance/tolerance to CMV and other plant pathogenic viruses.
