The aim of this research area is to study diseases and pests and their effects on plant health.
Research of molecular mechanisms of interactions between plants and pathogens
Population genetics of invasive pests
Molecular genetic studies of the diffusion dynamics of invasive pests and investigation of the interactions of invasive pests with native antagonists
Innovative plant protection methods
Research on bacteria and fungi and their association with plants and insects to use this alternative for chemical control of pathogens and pests.
