The research focusses on endophtyic microorganisms isolated from stress-tolerant local, wild cucurbits. The objective is to generate abiotic and biotic tolerant melon crop plants, colonized by the isolated endophytes. Determine mechanism of host resistance and gene expression.
General microbiology and molecular methods for fungal detection and characterization. Methods required: DNA extraction, sequencing, gene expression
