Image shows three leaves.


Image shows the differences between a pathogen-infected leaf (top) from a wild type plant (where the adaptive transposon insertion mechanism involving COPIA-R7 is intact) and two mutants (where this mechanism is compromised). The wild type plant remains healthy. The two mutants (middle and bottom) get sick and exhibit disease symptoms caused by the fungal pathogen. Photo credit: Eulgem Lab, UC Riverside.
