Important fungal , bacterial and viral diseases affect Brassica juncea (Indian mustard). Here, a comprehensive genome-w ide analysis of disease resistance (A) genes (nucleotide-binding site-leucine-rich repeat, receptor-like kinases and receptor-like proteins) was performed in B. juncea. This provides an important resource to identify candidate genes for specific diseases, a key step to enhancing resistance against important pathogens. Candidate A genes we re identified that were located within published disease loci. SNPs identified within the candidate genes can be used for downstream analysis, such as marker­ assisted selection and to validate candidate genes for breeding improved B. juncea cultivars.
