Research output: Patent


The present invention relates to a method method of testing a sample for the presence of a Meloidogyne nematode, said method comprising the step of analyzing the nucleic acid in said sample for the presence of an rRNA gene of a Meloidogyne nematode, or the transcription product thereof, or a fragment thereof, comprising at least one single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and/or at least one oligonucleotide polymorphism (OP) that is essentially unique on phylum level to a specific group of Meloidogyne nematode species of which said Meloidogyne nematode is a member, wherein said step of analyzing said nucleic acid involves a nucleic acid hybridization assay, and wherein said group comprises (a) the species M. chitwoodi, M. fallax </i
