Plant vs. Virus: Comparative transcriptomic analysis of single TuMV-infected micro-dissected plant cells
In this tutorial, you will find:
- How studying the early events of virus infection in plants avoids the dilution effect and allows identification of the key molecular players involved in initial plant-virus interactions.
- How the MMI CellCut microdissection system allows dissection of the first virus-infected plant cells during virus-plant interactions.
- The results of a comparative transcriptomic analysis of Arabidopsis thaliana leaf tissue two days post-infection with Turnip mosaic virus.
