Within a framework of task WP1.1 ‘Ecological approach to forest pest management’, dr Lassaad Belbahri, from Laboratory of Applied Genetics, University of Applied Science in Lullier, Switzerland visited the Department of Forest Phytopathology IBL.. Scientist from Switzerland made laboratory tests and carried on training of Institute’s employees in biomolecular techniques use in forest trees pathogens identification.
Dr Belbahri is a specialist in DNA analysis use through Real Time PCR which lets to identify studied species and its pathogeny. Pathogens identification and detection tests and analyses were carried out by RT-PCR-Chromo4 device.
Stay schedule consisted inter alia of: discussion on Phlebiopsis, Pleurotus and Lentinus fungi sequences, and use of filtered water to direct DNA extraction. Dr Belbahri presented a paper on: “Diagnostic of diseases using Real Time PCR and microarrays”.
