This is a BBSRC case studentship with Syngenta in collaboration with The James Hutton Institute (£94k over 4 years)
European legislation is prohibiting the use of synthetic chemicals for the control of plant parasitic nematodes which globally cause economic losses of around £80 billion annually. Pasteuria penetrans is an endospore forming bacterium with potential to be developed into a biological control agent of these economically important pests. This project aims to develop it as a environmentally benign control for plant-parasitic nematodes.
