Genomic approaches are beginning to revolutionize our understanding of plant disease resistance. Large-scale sequencing will reveal the detailed organization of resistance-gene clusters and the genetic mechanisms involved in generating new resistance specificities. Global functional analyses will elucidate the complex regulatory networks and the diversity of proteins involved in resistance and susceptibility.
