Biotechnology tools for improving disease resistance and seed quality in legumes
Development of the use of tumour necrosis factor related apoptosis inducing ligand or apo2 ligand (trail) as an efficient anti-tumour therapy as an alternative to chemo/radiotherapy.
Efficient control strategies against phytoplasma vectoring psyllids will be established by the help of molecular markers to study their life cycle, by determining the transmission parameters and by developing disturbation strategies.
Production of antibodies against novel gene products(proteins) is essential, but there are often obstacles to studying brain function or disease. Commercial availability of sets of antibodies will be useful to many brain research facilities.
