Research of the Laboratory of Phytopathology

The Laboratory of Phytopathology participates in The graduate school of Experimental Plant Sciences.

The aim of the research is to gain fundamental knowledge about plant pathogenic fungi and oomycetes, the interaction with their host plants and the interaction with bacteria as they occur in the rhizosphere. This knowledge can then contribute to prevention, management or control of diseases in important agricultural crops.

The Laboratory of Phytopathology has seven research groups. For more information, follow the links in the menu on the right.
