Boa oportunidade: bolsa pós-doc em Nematologia !


A Dra. Erika V. S. Albuquerque Freire, pesquisadora da Embrapa/ Cenargen, está divulgando aos interessados uma oportunidade muito boa de bolsa de pós-doutorado como participante de projeto envolvendo estudo avançado sobre nematoides de galhas (Meloidogyne). Um resumo do projeto de pesquisa a ser desenvolvido (em inglês) segue mais abaixo. Os candidatos à bolsa devem enviar currículo (CV) com brevidade para ou buscar mais detalhes pelo telefone (61) 3448-4670. Quem sabe faz a hora …

Functional analysis of Meloidogyne candidate genes and identification of their host targets

“Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are one of the three most economically damaging genera of plant-parasitic nematodes on horticultural and field crops in all temperate and tropical areas.  Meloidogyne are obligatory parasites that settle in roots and complete their life cycle by feeding from host cells. Nematode worms induce the differentiation of root cells into metabolically active feeding cells that enable the parasite to pump large amounts of nutrient solutions from the plant’s vascular system. Meloidogyne deploy a wide array of secretions to manipulate host cell functions and to achieve root intercellular propagation.

The proposed project involves a French (IRD) and a Brazilian (UCB-Embrapa-Cenargen) teams internationally recognized in the field of molecular analysis of plant-pathogen interactions. In addition, collaboration will be developed with an

African international institute (AfricaRice) devoted to rice agronomical research, and with competence in nematology. The proposed program will associate the functional analysis of Meloidogyne candidate genes and identification of their host targets.

The identification and analyses of plant/host interactions in the proposed project will lead to a molecular understanding of the virulence strategies of an important root parasite. In addition, the proposed research will provide a significant contribution to understanding how pathogen effectors promote disease in plant hosts, which may open novel avenues for protecting crops. By instance, taking advantage of the host-mediated RNAi strategy, this project could lead to the generation of genetically-modified plants with potential anti-nematode activity against Meloidogyne spp.”
