Project: Isolation and characterisation of genes involved in the initiation and forming of leafy galls on Arabidopsis thaliana.
- project duration
- 01-OCT-96 – 30-SEP-00
- The project aims a detailed study of genes involved in the pathogenic interaction between Rhodococcus fascians and his host plants. These genes will be isolated by cDNA-AFLP techniques with Arabidopsis thaliana as a model system. Characterisation will happen by means of in situ hybridisation icroscopy and mutant studies.
