Expert Answer:

1. Introducing genes from other plants or bacteria encoding enzymes like chitinase or glucanase for managing fungal infections in plants.
2. By giving a plant a viral gene encoding the virus' 'coat protein'. The plant can produce this viral protein before the virus infects the plant. If the virus arrives, it will not be able to reproduce.
3. Novel disease-resistant plants of a small number of species have been regenerated from cells selected in culture for their resistance to toxins through tissue culture techniques.
