Bacterial blight, caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. Oryzae, is the most devastating plant bacterial disease in Asia. Exploration, identification and utilization of new resistant germplasms to rice breeding are the effective pathway to control the disease. Mapping and cloning the resistant genes makes MAS (marker-assisted selection) and transgenic technology play a great role in breeding program for disease resistance and let people have a profound insight on molecular mechanism of resistance to bacterial blight. In this paper, mapping, cloning and application of the genes resisting to bacterial blight were summarized, and also some suggestions were put forward to relieve the damaging extent caused by bacterial blight via utilizing disease resistant breeding program.
