The current status of the application can be seen at www.protectedsite.ch under "News".
Publication in the Federal Law Gazette (BBl):
Applicant: Agroscope, Institute for Sustainability Sciences ISS and Institute for Plant Production Sciences IPS
Property: Resistance to late blight of potato
- Late blight resistance gene
- Promoter: native promotor from the respective Rpi gene;
- Late blight resistance gene: different Rpi genes from wild potatoes;

- Marker gene
These cisgenic potato lines have been produced without introducing marker genes into the plants.
Purpose of experiment:
- Testing of the resistance against local (Swiss) isolates of the pathogen;
- Analysis of the phenotypic properties;
- Clarification of biosafety aspects.
