Provide the nematology community with information on the comparative mitogenomics of plant-parasitic nematodes. This information will be used to provide diagnostic and management tools to growers.
This research will 1) Develop a mitogenomic molecular diagnostics tool that differentiates Xiphinema americanum group nematodes; 2) Reveal relationships between the most important plant-parasitic nematodes using comparative mitogenomics, and; 3) Determine the relatedness of G. ellingtonae to other Globodera species using population genetics methods.
