Research group Dr. Diederichsen

The group exists since January 2003 at the Institute of Applied Genetics and focuses on two research areas:


Genetics and race-specifity of clubroot resistance in Brassica

Root tumor on a susceptible plant infected with Plasmodiophora brassicae Healthy root of a resistant cultivar after Plasmodiophora brassicae infection


Strategies to generate resistance to Verticillium wilt in Brassica

Stunted growth after infection with Verticillum longisporum


Identification of Sclerotinia resistant Brassica germplasm

Resistant sample
Susceptible sample
