Plant parasitic nematodes cause a great deal of damage to global agriculture each year. Some of these parasites can convert normal plant root tissue into a feeding site, which drains plant resources and under heavy burden can lead to plant death.

A viable approach for genetic modification to study these plant-parasitic nematodes is a crucial step in understanding how genes function in the parasites.

The goal of this project is to develop a reliable GM method for the plant-parasitic nematodes which could help to understand more about gene function in these parasites.
