Study at UC Davis Shows Rice Can “Borrow” Stronger Immunity From Other Plant SpeciesExternal link

Like most other plants, rice is well equipped with an effective immune system that enables it to detect and fend off disease-causing microbes. But that built-in immunity can be further boosted when the rice plant receives a receptor protein from a completely different plant species. Read More »
