Nematology Laboratory

The Laboratory of Nematology (NemaLab), celebrates 20 years of existence and aims to study the phytoparasitic nematodes that affect high economic value plants (vine, potato, pinus pinaster), with a special interest in their interactions with the Hosts and other microorganisms (such as bacteria) and explore possible methods of biocontrol.

Phytoparasitic Nematodes Diagnostic

The NEMALAB offers diagnostic services of phytoparasitic nematodes, which affect forestry systems (potato and other horticultural crops, vines, pines) and the tourism sector (e.g., golf courses) to Individuals or companies. We are a laboratory credited by DGAV in the analysis of the nemátode of pine wood (almost 20 years ago) and nematodes vectors of virus in vines (Xiphinema and Longidorus spp.). The Nemátode of Galls (Meloidogyne spp.) and Nemátode of the cysts (Globodera and Heterodera spp.) that cause problems in potato and tomato can also be diagnosed. 

  • Morphological and/or molecular identification services (price depending on the type of analysis)
  • Technical-scientific consulting services

The laboratory of Nematology collaborates since 1995 with the Department of Biology (and others) of the EU in support of several classes in the areas of zoology (Nematology) and others (project), both at undergraduate level (degree in biology) and graduate (Masters), Participating and supporting the realization of theses at the undergraduate level (end-of-course work), Master (thesis), PhD (dissertation) and doctoral.
