Stem canker of oilseed rape: molecular tools and mathematical modelling to deploy durable resistance

Objective

SECURE aims to deliver a strategy for effective deployment of resistance to improve durability of new resistance genes in oilseed rape cultivars. SECURE will use state of the art molecular and modelling tools, and field and controlled environment experiments to:
1. Develop a mechanistic model of the life cycle of Leptosphaeria maculas on oilseed rape and validate it with existing and new data from field experiments.
2. Study molecular mechanisms responsible for generation of new virulent races (and their fitness deficit).
3. Analyse effects of genetic background and environment on resistance durability.
4. Construct models and disseminate recommendations (through different routes, e.g. an interactive web-site) for the deployment of resistance to maximise durability.
