Identification and characterization (phenotypical, biochemical and molecular) of new biological control agents; development and assessment of stable bioformulations effective against Verticillium wilt of olive. Evaluation of strawberry transgenic lines, transformed with genes of proven effectiveness against other phytopathogens, for their tolerance level to Rosellinia necatrix.
