    Description

    Melampsora larici-populina is causing leaf rust disease in poplar (Populus spp.) worldwide and poses serious problems to poplar breeders in France and in northern Europe. As with other rust fungi, its obligate biotroph status hinders laboratory investigations. Understanding the biology of rust fungi and deciphering the molecular mechanisms underlying biotrophy have long been a problem. Most of the knowledge gained was largely descriptive and limited to a few rust species; only recently has substantial progress been made in the characterization of avirulence determinants of the flax rust Melampsora lini.
