it: Research Position: Production of new RNAi based agrochemicals for straberry and grape defense [Duties: Grape and strawberry are economically very important worldwide and demand high amount of fungicides to manage fungal and oomycetes diseases. It is urgent to find alternatives to agrochemicals with no impact on environment, human and animal health. The use of RNAi technology, bidirectional cross-kingdom RNAi and two-way sRNA traf?cking between pests/pathogens and hosts, can offer new options in plant protection with the generation of new RNAi based products that can be applied on plants, by spray or injection, with a target specific effect on pest and diseases. This project aims to develop a SIGS (Spray Induced Gene Silencing) approach to induce silencing of key pathogenicity genes of major fungal and oomycete pathogens of grape and strawber... | Minimum Requirements: to apply for research grants fill out the form available at the following address: https://www.aricweb.unibo.it/BandiPubblicati/zz_Bandi_din.aspx] / Università di Bologna; Bologna, Emilia-Romagna, Italy / deadline April 26
