Project Description
Become proficient in basic and advanced molecular biology techniques through dissecting the basis of nematode parasitism in plants. Plant parasitic nematodes devastate agriculture and there are little avenues for control. In the DiGennaro lab, we are using genetic and genomic tools to understand the complex and intimate relationship between the obligate nematode parasites and their plant hosts. This knowledge can then be used to inform novel strategies to control nematode disease.
