The most promising strategy to create virus resistant plants today is gene silencing technology called RNA interference.
The essence of RNA-induced gene silencing is the delivery of double-stranded RNA into an organism or cell, inducing a sequence-specific RNA degradation mechanism that effectively silences a targeted gene.
For this purpose we transferred the Chrysanthemum virus B coat protein gene sequences into specific vector pKannibal in order to generate small double stranded RNA complementary to this sequence and obtained four transgenic lines of chrysanthemum ‘White Snowdon’.
