PROTECT: Priming for Resistance Of Trees and its Effects on microbial CommuniTies
To protect themselves from pests and pathogens, plants have evolved multi-layered resistance mechanisms that include both constitutive and inducible defenses. These defense mechanisms are not static, but are adaptive to environmental changes.
Microalgae contributions to future protein and fatty acid rich feed for Norwegian chicken at industrial scale - ALGEKYLLING
The main goal of the project is to create a knowledge and technology platform for production and use of chicken feed with proteins and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) from Norwegian microalgae biomass. The project consortium includes the whole production/value chain.
PROTECT: Effects of defense priming on Norway spruce needle microbiome and pest resistance
In correlation with our Research Council of Norway funded project on the effects of Norway spruce defense priming on the root microbiome and resistance, we will also analyse the effects of spruce defense priming and soil microbiota on the spruce needle microbiome and resistance. This project is funded by SNS - Nordic Forest Research.
