In the last few years a new era has been set up in investigations focused on the host-pathogen interrelationships. A growing body of information has now been available on the molecular genetic background of recognition, pathogenicity and host plant resistance. Novel strategies of resistance breeding based on transgenic plants transformed by resistance genes of plant or microbe origin are being borne. The present study aims to give a survey of available cloned genes that code for virulence or avirulence of pathogenic microorganisms (first part) and confer resistance or susceptibility of the host plants (this part). Special attention is given for those attempts that purport the engineering of novel-type plant resistance by introducing alien genetic sequences.
