Abstract

Phytonematodes cause annual crop losses of $100 billion per year. Pasteuria penetrans is a bacterium that has potential to be developed into a biological control agent as an alternative to nematicides. This poster is an overview of a collagen-like gene that is responsible for adhesion of the bacterium to the nematode's cuticle as the first step in the infection process.
