Excellent Ph.D. Students and Post-Doctoral Trainees are Welcome to Join a Challenging Research

Biological Control of Insect Pests: Expressing Genes that Encode Highly Specific Toxins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) in Rootstocks of Target Trees

 

The project, led by Professors Eitan Ben-Dov1,3, Zvi Mendel2, and Arieh Zaritsky1, is conducted at 1Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Be'er-Sheva, 2Agricultural Research Center, Beit-Dagan, and 3Achva Academic College, and financed mainly by the Israel Ministry of Agriculture.
 
The Student/Trainee can be registered in The Faculty of Agriculture of The Hebrew University or in Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
The project involves cloning of a selected set of cry and cyt genes from field-isolates of Bt that have been demonstrated toxic to 3 species of the Coleopteran Capnodis, pest of stone-fruit trees.

 

Soon after larval Capnodis spp hatch, they enter the roots of such trees and destroy them, and hence no currently available efficient method exists to combat this beetle pest.

 

The cloned genes will be engineered for expression in (a) Escherichia coli and Bt, (b) plant model systems protoplasts of Arabiposis thaliana and embryos of almonds (transiently) and finally (c) roots of stone-fruit trees.
