Plant Resistance to parasitic nematodes
22 September 2017 10:00


Insight into molecular plant-nematode interactions can lead to innovative approaches to control these parasites.

In this lecture, the nematode resistance genes, available for traditional breeding purposes, are discussed.

In addition, novel approaches, such as defence elicitors, or genetic modification, to attain resistance or tolerance towards nematodes are introduced.
