Screen a group of wild potato species to identify new potato germplasm that confer resistance to potato cyst nematodes (Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida) and Dickeya blackleg and soft rot disease.
1. Use pot or canister assay to screen wild potato species for resistance against G. rostochienisis Ro2 and G. pallida. 2. Use a tuber maceration assay to screen wild potato species for resistance against Dickeya.
