The course gives a hands on introduction to specific advanced methods in plant pathology such as:
The use of fluorescent reporters with filamentous fungi (fungal transformation and advanced microscope techniques) (BJe/HJo)
Plant disease diagnostics based on symptoms, pathogen morphology, diagnostic keys and taxonomy (HJo/BJe)
Molecular plant disease diagnostics (OSL)
Methods used for studying induced resistance (HJo)
Methods in biological control
Screening and evaluation of Biological Control Agents (BCAs) (MeNi/Bje)
Monitoring for BCAs in the environment (MeNi)
Real time PCR for studying Plant-microbe interactions (MAN/MLYN)
Gene knock-out in fungi and their effects on interactions with plants or other organisms (HTC)
These techniques are taught in specific modules.
Normally a student will chose one of these modules but may combine as appropriate.
The course gives a hands on introduction to advanced methods in plant pathology of direct relevance for the individual research project.
Individual for specific modules.
Modules can be combined or taken separately.
Ad hoc course,
