DEVELOPMENT OF A TURF PATHOCHIP AND UNDERSTANDING THE POPULATION BIOLOGY OF PLANT PATHOGENIC FUNGI

Project Details

Description

Fungi constitute the majority of pathogens that infect and damage many agricultural crops. Early detection and accurate identification of the pathogens are essential for developing efficacious control strategies. This project aims to develop a highly sensitive molecular detection system, PathoChip, for detection of fungal pathogens, and to study the biology of pathogens of turfgrass and dogwood.
