Disease severity assessment after
point inoculation. (A)
Fg-GFP infected spikes at 18 DAI. Arrows indicate the site of point inoculation. (B) and (C) The percentage of infected rachis nodes and infected spikelet were scored at different time points. 40 heads and 20 plants per genotype were examined. A two-way ANOVA of data was performed at α = 0.01; treatments with common letters over the error bars are not significantly different from each other. Error bars represent standard error. This is one of three independent experiments with similar results.
