Root Pathogen Dynamics - Aarhus University
It is well known that soil-borne pathogens are influenced by crop rotations. However, little is known about the relation between plant root health and pathogen population dynamics at the community level. Recent technologies such as pyrosequencing have enabled a hitherto unseen detail in studies of the composition of pathogen communities in environmental samples. This study will use pyrosequencing to characterize populations of pathogens from soils with suspected problems of disease and from soils with no history of disease, comparing these data with disease development in the following crop. The study will include onion, carrot and strawberry diseases. The study is expected to lead to a better understanding of the population dynamics of soil microbial communities in relation to development of root diseases.
