Select vital genes / molecules for gall nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) by analyzing their genome.

AL9

Select potential genes involved in resistance from contrasting genotypes (peanuts; soybeans; rice; cotton and coffee)

AL5 AL9

Integrate legume transcriptome data (beans, soybeans and peanuts) submitted to water deficit, generated by mass sequencing (Illumina – HiSeq) in previous projects.

AL5 AL9

Integrate monocotyledonous transcriptome data (rice, corn, wheat, Musa and sorghum) submitted to water deficit, generated by mass sequencing (Illumina – HiSeq) in previous projects.

AL5 AL9

Integrate transcriptome data from resistant genotypes (beans, soy, rice, coffee and peanuts) infected by nematodes, generated by mass sequencing (Illumina – HiSeq) in previous projects.

AL5 AL9

Sequence on the Illumina platform a fraction of small RNAs, and their target mRNAs, and circular RNAs of plants (Arachis; Musa; soybean; pitangueira; cashew tree) subjected to biotic and / or abiotic stresses.

AL5 AL9

Analyze sequencing data to check methylation status of gene promoters in the metabolic pathways of interest.

AL5 AL9

Organize an in silico database cured and shared by INCT members.

AL1 AL2 AL5 AL9

Organize, maintain and share an in vivo bank of the innovation assets obtained in the project shared by INCT members.
