Once purified, these antigens will be used to produce monoclonal and polyclonal anti-sera. These anti-sera will then be used to investigate the cellular localization of the N gene products in the various types of tobacco cells at various points before, during and after infection with standard immunohistochemical techniques.
In the second stage, protein-protein interactions are critical to the functions of most proteins and this has proven especially true for those involved in regulatory and signal transduction circuits. The initial focus will involve a protein-protein interaction trap known as the yeast two-hybrid system.
If the proteins interact in a specific manner, they will be capable of activating transcription of an appropriate reporter gene. Once an interaction has been identified, the appropriate mutants will be constructed and tested to identify the specific structures involved. Any findings from the two-hybrid system, or any in vitro approach, will be confirmed in vivo, using transgenic tobacco plants as well as sequence analysis and genetic mapping, where appropriate.

The identification of a pseudokinase RKS1 for the resistance of A. The use of different, interconnected approaches is clearly an advantage to validate the GWAS results. For example, QTL mapping with recombinant populations can be used to confirm a region Nemri et al. This strategy is more applicable when recombinant populations with high-density marker map are available. Alternatively, independent association genetics validation is also a relevant strategy.
Often neglected except for human GWA, replication of association mapping greatly contributes to elucidating causality, with the advantage of examining the natural genetic variation segregating within populations that have different recombination history. There is indeed a strong hint for causality if two independent association studies reveal the same top variant, even though the two replicate studies use different population samples. Examining the genotype-phenotype link may lead to an attractive list of genes useful for molecular studies in plant pathology and resistance management strategies.
Yet, association genetics that aims at finding causal variants also provides the opportunity to address fundamental questions in evolutionary quantitative genetics. These questions are the following: 1 What molecular variants contribute the most to the standing phenotypic variation? Importantly, GWA has limitations that may vary depending on the species and the phenotype under study and it is not trivial to perform a successful GWAS with good statistical power to detect causal variants. Even if molecular variants with large phenotypic effect are often discovered, certainly many more variants that contribute to the phenotypic variation remain to be found.
Understanding the Molecular Basis of Disease Resistance in Plants
The ability to detect these variants will require alternative strategies. We suggest that using very large sample sizes and combining population genomics with population transcriptomics and epigenetics should greatly contribute to elucidating the complex genotype-phenotype map in plant pathogen interactions.
