Evaluation of entomopathogenic fungi as a biological control agent of Cameraria ohridella, an invasive pest of Aesculus hippocastanum in Europe.
Poster Aug 18, 2009
We evaluated the potential for using entomopathogenic fungi to control the horse chestnut leaf-miner, Cameraria ohridella Deschka et Dimic (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae). The laboratory bioassays revealed a high insecticidal activity of I. fumosorosea blastospores and conidia on both C. ohridella pupae and eggs.
Despite the developments in conventional PCR, the complexity of multiplex Real Time PCR is still limited due to the lack of sufficient detection channels. To achieve high-end multiplexing capacity on standard Real Time PCR machines, Anapa Biotech has developed the MeltPlex® technology (see box on right).READ MORE
