Development of a tomato/root knot nematode bioassay to screen beneficial microbes
(New Zealand Plant Protection Society (Inc.), 2009)
In common with other root knot nematodes Meloidogyne hapla is a serious plant pest. A rapid screening system for candidate microbes that benefit plant growth is a first step to developing screening bioassays in ...
Pheromones use in smart-autoinoculation systems using insects as vectors of plant pathogens in weed biocontrol
(National Centre for Advanced Bio-Protection Technologies, 2004-07)
Insect pheromones have also been developed and successfully used in a number of New Zealand horticultural crops for monitoring or direct control strategies Synthetic pheromones have been used in NZ for delimiting the Asian ...
Development of an isolate-specific marker for tracking Phaeomoniella chlamydospora infection in grapevines
(Mycological Society of America, 2005)
Petri disease causes decline of grapevines worldwide. The grapevine endophyte Phaeomoniella chlamydospora is the most important fungal pathogen associated with this disease. Epidemiological studies of this pathogen have ...
Identification of novel genes associated with conidiation in Beauveria bassiana with suppression subtractive hybridization
(Mycological Society of America, 2008)
The conidiation of the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana (Hyphomycete) is a complex process that involves the stage- and cell-type-specific expression of hundreds of genes. The suppression subtractive hybridization ...
