Full Title: Identification of avirulence genes in Globodera pallida as tools for assessing durability of resistance
Duration: October 2015 to September 2018

Background

This project aims to develop tools that will allow improved resistance screening and prediction of durability of resistance. The student will analyse the diversity in effector sequences from the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida in order to identify candidate avirulence genes from this species that are recognised by the commercially important resistance QTLs from Solanum verneii and S. tuberosum spp. andigena CPC 2802. .  The avirulence genes will be used to generate markers that could be used to predict the presence of resistance breaking nematodes in field populations of G. pallida within the UK. 

Aims and Approach

Aim: To analyse diversity in effector sequences from the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida in order to identify candidate avirulence genes.
