• The microRNA response associated with methyl jasmonate-induced resistance in Norway spruce bark 

      Wilkinson, Samuel; Vivian-Smith, Adam; Krokene, Paal; Magerøy, Melissa (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-05-15)
      Methyl jasmonate (MeJA) treatment elicits induced resistance (IR) against pests and diseases in Norway spruce (Picea abies). We recently demonstrated using mRNA-seq that this MeJA-IR is associated with both a prolonged ...

      Magerøy, Melissa; Wilkinson, Samuel W.; Tengs, Torstein; Cross, Hugh; Almvik, Marit; Petriacq, Pierre; Vivian-Smith, Adam; Zhao, Tao; Fossdal, Carl Gunnar; Krokene, Paal (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-04-22)
      In response to various stimuli, plants acquire resistance against pests and/or pathogens. Such acquired or induced resistance allows plants to rapidly adapt to their environment. Spraying the bark of mature Norway spruce ...
