Research Areas




Start Date: 1 November 2012 | End Date: 30 April 2014


The main purpose of this project is to modify autophagy (a pathway for quality control and recycling of cell components) to target pathogenic viruses. This new strategy for virus elimination in plants will first be tested with viruses affecting cassava, but it should be  functional in other plant-virus systems as well.
