Interpretive Summary: We have described two protocols for generating transgenic potato plants and for evaluating tissue-cultured potato plants for infection by potato cyst nematodes. These protocols are useful for the study of the interactions between potato cyst nematodes and potato.

Technical Abstract: These two protocols describe the methods for generating transgenic potato plants and for evaluating potato cyst nematode (Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida) infection on potato plantlets in tissue culture. These methods are useful tools that can be used in the study of the interactions between potato cyst nematodes and their host plant of potato.
