Circumvention of plant transformation, methodological simplicity, robustness, and speedy results makes VIGS an attractive alternative instrument in functional genomics, even in a high throughput fashion. The system is well established in Nicotiana benthamiana, and efforts are being made to improve VIGS in other species, including monocots. Here, we discuss the issues specific to the application of VIGS technology to determine gene function, which has revealed the roles of a variety of genes in disease resistance, abiotic stress, cellular signaling and secondary metabolite biosynthesis. © 2007 Springer-Verlag.||Source Title:||Plant Cell Reports||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/102585||ISSN:||07217714||DOI:||10.1007/s00299-007-0460-2|
