Assignments and publications

Here you can find examples of assignments and publications that SLU Risk assessment of plant pests are working with. Risk assessments Risk assessments are frequently conducted as so-called Pest Risk

Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

We undertake fundamental and applied research focused on interactions involving plants, pathogenic, symbiotic and saprotrophic fungi, bacteria and a rchaea and their role in forest and agricultural

Ethanol Production

Non-conventional yeasts (i.e. all known yeast species except Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida albicans and Schizosaccharomyces pombe) are a currently under-utilised resource with a great academic

Projects

Larger projects that SLU Risk assessment of plant pests works with. Assessing the confidence in pest freedom gained in the past pine wood nematode surveys Quarantine pests are surveyed with the aim

Report regulated pests

If you suspect an attack by a quarantine pest, you are obliged to report it to the Swedish Board of Agriculture by filling in a report form. Here you will also find more information about new and

SLU Risk assessment of plant pests

We perform independent analyses which will provide support to the Swedish Board of Agriculture in their effort to counter the damage of non-indigenous pests.

The Plant Catabolism Laboratory

We are interested in the mechanisms and functions of catabolic processes during development, aging and stress response at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. Our experimental models span

Autophagy

Autophagy (“self-eating”) is a major catabolic process in eukaryotes that involves the sequestration of cytoplasmic contents into double membraned vesicles known as autophagosomes, which are then

Proteases

Proteases cleave polypeptide chains and, in this way, modulate activity of target proteins and downstream pathways. Our current efforts are to unravel structure-function relationships of metacaspases

food printing

During the last year there has been ongoing work at SLU to create printable food inks from starch, fibre and protein rich fractions extracted from Faba beans. One of the persons that has been highly

Tree microbiomes

In this project, we study the ecological mechanisms contributing to the assembly of a tree’s microbiome. The project will reveal host traits correlated with pathogen susceptibility relevant for
