Efficiency of TRV-based VIGS in different wild relatives of potato. The clones that responded to VIGS with TRV (silencing of PDS), were classified into three groups: a moderate to strong silencing, b moderate silencing and c low-level silencing. Photograph at the top of the panels ac shows silencing phenotype representative for each group. Responsive clones are listed in each corresponding panel. Phylogenetic tree of 62 clones (d) that were available in SolRgene database was constructed with interactive online tool using UPGMA method. All VIGS responsive clones are highlighted in yellow. The clones from the group of moderate to strong silencing are labelled with a red dot. Solanum lycopersicum (LYC) and Solanum tuberosum (TBR) clones (highlighted in grey) were added to the phylogenetic tree to illustrate the relations of wild potato relatives to tomato and cultivated potato.
