CIVIS announces the opening of the registration for the short CIVIS course “Molecular plant pathology: the main strategies of Integrated Pest Management”. The programme runs for 8 weeks in a blended format from October 1 to December 9, 2021. It will take place once a week for 2 hours and it is organized in lectures and seminars from students and invited professors. The offline activities will take place in Rome.

The aim of this course is to provide knowledge on the molecular aspects of plant-pathogen interactions.
It will more specifically focus on:
- Showing how pathogens counteract to plant defense response in order to establish resistance
- The molecular aspects of fungi, bacteria, and fungi
Additionally, an emphasis will be given to the role of mycotoxins in the interaction of fungi and plants. The role of genomics for the identification of effector genes and other factors will be highlighted.
