  1. 1. Functional characterization of sterol regulatory element transcription factors in the biocontrol fungus Clonostachys rosea

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

    Author : Alma Gustavsson Ruus; [2022]
    Keywords : SREBP; Sterol Regulatory Element Binding Protein; Sterol regulatory element transcription factor; INSIG; SCAP; Clonostachys rosea; biological control; hypoxia; antagonism; Botrytis cinerea; Fusarium graminearum; Boscalid; Proline; prothioconazole; Integrated Pest Management;

    Abstract : Phytopathogens account for a large portion of the yield loss in the world today. Developing sustainable strategies to limit their effect for increasing food safety and security is one of important challenge for agriculture and horticulture production systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Can the northern root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne hapla, be controlled by the fungus Clonostachys rosea? : an experimental study

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

    Author : Jesper Fritzson; [2022]
    Keywords : Biological control; ; Carrot; Clonostachys rosea; Drought; Lettuce; Meloidogyne hapla; Nematodes; Pot experiment;

    Abstract : The northern root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne hapla, is causing great economical losses to growers worldwide. There is a need for alternative control measures that are environmentally sustainable and effective against the nematode. READ MORE

  3. 3. A molecular analysis of the interaction between the biocontrol fungus Clonostachys rosea and the cereal pathogen F. graminearum

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

    Author : Esther Kuper; [2021]
    Keywords : Agrobacterium- mediated transformation; Biocontrol; Clonostachys rosea;

    Abstract : Modern agriculture is increasingly challenged by newly emerging crop diseases- many of them caused by fungal pathogens. At the same time, excessive application of chemical fungicides accelerates the development of resistant pathogen strains and may cause harmful effects on non-target organisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation of bee-vectored Aureobasidium pullulans for biocontrol of grey mould in strawberry

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Protection Biology

    Author : Matilda Jützeler; [2021]
    Keywords : Aureobasidium pullulans; biocontrol; Bombus terrestris; Botrytis cinerea; entomovectoring; fungal disease; strawberry;

    Abstract : The fungal pathogen Botrytis cinerea causes grey mould in strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa) inflicting great yield loss and significant economic loss. To date, spraying with chemical fungicides is the primary management practice to control this disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellobiose dehydrogenase from Clonostachys rosea: Production, purification and activity analysis

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Strukturbiologi

    Author : Terese Larsson; [2021]
    Keywords : cellobiose dehydrogenase; CDH; Clonostachys rosea; DCIP assay;

    Abstract : Biological control agents are a promising niche to replace chemical pesticides for treating plant pathogens in agriculture. A potential biocontrol agent is the microparasitic fungi Clonostachys rosea which has the ability to attack various plant pathogens such as other fungi and nematodes. READ MORE
