Use conserved nematode effector genes as probes to identify wild potato species with resistance to Globodera rostochiensis.
1. Analyze Globodera nematode genome sequences to identify conserved effector genes. 2. Use conserved effectors to screen a list of wild potato accessions for a hypersensitive response. 3. Test the candidate wild potato accessions for resistance to G. rostochiensis.
