Diagnostic Resistance gene enrichment Sequencing (dRenSeq) is a method for tracking and verifying the integrity of multiple functional NLR genes in complex genetic backgrounds. Traditionally, these tasks have been addressed by laborious and time-consuming PCR-based approaches or, where cognate avirulence genes are available, effector recognition studies. Both these approaches are superseded by dRenSeq in terms of cost-effectiveness, efficiency, and accuracy.
