Metabolomic profiles associated with physiological resistance to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (Lib.) de Bary in common bean
Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is an important global food crop with a recently sequenced and annotated genome. Plant metabolic and hormone processes are being increasingly recognized as central to disease resistance. For common bean, the molecular and metabolic processes that mediate resistance to white mold disease (caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, (Lib.) de Bary) are largely unknown. Identifying metabolites associated with Sclerotinia infection may provide novel targets to breed for enhanced resistance. The metabolic changes that occur during S. sclerotiorum infection of a detached ...
