Aphid resistance in a Capsicum collection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper

Abstract

Aphids are a problem in pepper cultivation, causing direct damage as well as acting as vectors for viruses. Resistance to aphids is therefore a desired trait in pepper varieties, but resistant varieties are not available yet. Our research is focused on finding sources of aphid resistance and elucidation of the genetics and mechanism of resistance. In our poster we present some of our results: an efficient bioassay with Myzus persicae and a comparison of the performance of a collection of Capsicum accessions in this biotest.
