What is SCNBase?

Abbreviated Question: 
What is SCNBase?
Answer: 

SCNBase is a website designed as a centralized knowledge base for SCN researchers and producers.  It contains genomics, genetics, population data along tools to translate this information in to practical applications.  SCNBase uses GMOD Tripal and Drupal's luggage extension to manage the genomics data and empower efficient web development by multiple users.

Elucidating the mode of action of phytohormone signaling in plant × nematode interactions.

In accordance with the central roles of phytohormones in cellular differentiation and organ morphogenesis, a growing body of experimental evidence indicates that plant-parasitic cyst and root-knot nematodes interfere with hormonal biosynthesis pathways and their signal transduction cascades to drive the infected root cells into becoming specialized new feeding cells. Recently, we determined the expression patterns of 22 auxin response factors (ARFs) in the syncytia induced by the beet cyst nematode in Arabidopsis roots.

Epigenetic control of plant-nematode interaction

Recent discoveries from my lab indicate that epigenetic modifications, biochemical modifications of DNA and associated proteins, play key roles in shaping the compatibility of the interactions between host plants and plant-parasitic nematodes. My team is currently investigating genome-wide epigenetic modifications that are associated with infection by cyst and root-knot nematodes in a number of model and crop plant species.

Characterizing molecular mechanisms of soybean resistance to pathogens

In collaboration with experimental scientists, our computational methods are often applied to study specific biological systems, characterizing specific diseases in human, animals, and plants. One such application is studying plant-nematode interactions to understand the molecular mechanisms behind the damage caused by these plant parasites and discover new ways of plant resistance. Recently, we have structurally characterized a homodimeric complex of a novel protein SHMT related to nematode resistance in soybeans.
