Description This proposal wholly supported a workshop on the transformation of plant-parasitic nematodes. The main outcomes of this proposal were open knowledge transfer of previous attempts, critical appraisal of available strategies, and the development of a series of "most promising" strategies for transformation in light of the former. A network has now been formed to share ideas and practises that we hope will facilitate future advancements in our field.
Exploitation Route Following the expert discussion at the workshop - various laboratories around the world are implementing the most promising strategies for transformation of plant parasitic nematodes. This work is currently ongoing.
