Project description

This multidisciplinary research project aims at understanding the early events leading to de novo organogenesis, a process of great agronomical importance. Moreover, this project will identify factors specifically affecting NFS establishment and next use these to identify chemical molecules that can specifically protect plants from nematode infections without affecting normal developmental processes.
