Résumé
Recent progress in understanding plant defence has highlighted a complex, interacting network of signalling pathways leading to the induction of numerous genes. The advent of new technologies for the global analysis of gene expression is fundamentally affecting research in biology, and studies on plant defence should benefit from these new approaches. Genome-wide microarrays will provide a powerful tool for the discovery of all defence-related genes and should help in elucidating their function. The association of a particular signalling pathway with a defence response can be tested with microarrays and defined mutants. Comparison of transcript profiles after biotic and abiotic stresses reveals overlapping activation of defence-related genes and defines new concepts on how plants cope with multiple aggressions. The combination of expression data with other biochemical or metabolite measurements seems another promising approach. Finally, small-scale, dedicated microarrays containing sets of well-characterised genes might prove to be a very useful complement to more expensive, less accessible, large-scale arrays.
