Technical Abstract: Great success has been and will continue to be made through traditional breeding methods. Continued efforts to improve crop resistance through conventional methods and genetic engineering have had limited success due to the lack of genetic resources and genes for resistance, the genetic complexity of host-pest interactions, and a poor understanding of the regulatory network underlying host defense response. Therefore, additional methods of disease/insect control and novel integrated pest management strategies are highly desirable. Further progress and new breakthroughs are now anticipated through integrated biology studies and the use of newly developing genomics tools.
