Title
Toward an understanding of the molecular basis of quantitative disease resistance in rice
Abstract

Rice crops are severely damaged by diseases caused by bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogens. Application of host resistance to these pathogens is the most economical and environmentally friendly approach to solve this problem. Quantitative resistance conferred by quantitative trait loci (QTL) is a valuable resource for the improvement of rice disease resistance. Although numerous resistance QTL against rice diseases have been identified, these resources have not been used effectively in rice improvement because the genetic control of quantitative resistance is complex and the genes underlying most of the resistance QTL remain unknown. This review focuses on the latest molecular progress in quantitative disease resistance in rice. This knowledge will be helpful for characterizing more resistance QTL and turning the quantitative resistance into actual resources for rice protection.
