COBRA (2014 - 2017)

A COmbination of systems Biology and experimental high-throughput approaches to engIneer durable Resistance against plAnt viruses in crops

COBRA is expected to provide new targets for resistance to plant viruses, distinct from the well described mechanism related to translation initiation factors eIF4E and eIF4G. COBRA will characterize those new resistance target genes based on the construction of a non-exhaustive database of plant-virus interactors and the use of next generation sequencing data. It will also establish high throughput platforms of transfer to crop species. This will allow the selection of new cultivars in tomato, barley and stone fruit trees by combining different mechanisms of resistance for sustainable virus protection.
