This Week in Nature

In this week's Nature Biotechnology, a team of British and US researchers report a new sequencing technique to accelerate the isolation of plant disease-resistance genes and its use to study potato late blight. By combining resistance gene sequence capture, or RenSeq, with single-molecule real-time sequencing, or SMRT, the team was able to isolate a new broad-spectrum resistance gene from a family of known resistance genes in a wild potato relative.
