In addition, Porch is using TILLING (Targeted Induced Local Lesions in Genomes), a technique that's based on identifying important genes in a population of mutated beans.
A continuous high temperature of 33[degrees]C caused systemic infection in Capsicum Chinese PI 152225 by Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), while all the inoculated plants grown in the greenhouse as controls at lower temperatures of 18 to 24[degrees]C reacted hypersensitively (necrotic local lesions) to TSWV (Roggero et al., 1996).
Although generally not useful for the detection of noncontiguous spread, CT is ideally suited to define the extent of local lesions, especially in anatomic sites where there are abundant fatty planes between muscle bundles.
