Project Title: Metabolic interactions between ash tree and its new invasive fungal patogen Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus (LD14078)
Key words: metabolic changes - common ash - Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus - resistance - pathogen
State funding provider: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports,
Principal investigator: Ing. Ludmila Havrdová,
Project period: 04/2014 - 04/2016.
The aim is the identification of metabolic changes in tissues of common ash (Fraxinus excelsior) induced by invasive fungal pathogen Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus and the comparison of metabolic responses of genotypes with different resistance level. The methodics usable for evaluation of resistance level of ash genotypes on the basis of morphological characteristics and their reproduction by in vitro techniques will be developed.
