Insect Pathology and Microbial Control

Introduction

Our laboratory concentrates on microbial control of insect pests using entomopathogenic microorganisms, opportunistic pathogens of insects, protozoan infection in insects, and defense reaction of insects to microbial diseases.

Research Theme

  1. Microbial control of insect pests and microbial insecticides
  2. Characterization of entomopathogenic microorganisms and mechanism of microbial infection on insects
    1. Infection and development of entomopathogenic protozoa (Microsporidia, Neogregarine)
    2. Pathogenicity of entomopathogenic bacteria (Paenibacillus spp., Pseudomonas spp., Serratia spp.)
  3. Defense reaction of insects against pathogens
  4. Studies of invertebrate cell culture
