- ... Here we argue for a research initiative on gene-for-gene (g-f-g) interactions between wheat and its parasites. One aim is to begin a conversation between the disparate communities of plant pathology and entomology. Another is to understand how responses to biotic stress are integrated in an important crop. The parasite's side of the g-f-g interaction is an Avirulence (Avr) gene that encodes one of ...
