Project description

The overall scope of this project is to gain new insights in the relation between plant hormone networks, abiotic stress and rice-pathogen interactions to predict which key factors determine resistance or susceptilibity to pathogens and nematodes in rice. this knowledge will allow us to develop predictors or indicators that can be used in integrated control programs for rice pathogens
