Screen basal defense resistance genes by inoculating potato varieties and hybrids with the identified Lso effector, and clone and characterize the resistance gene(s) of potato for genetic improvement.
Using Agrobacterium-mediated transient expression to screen potato host defense response of different varieties, and clone the putative resistant gene from selected resistant variety/germplasm using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) or PT-PCR and cloning techniques.
