Dr. Wissam Adnan Radhi Al-Jaafari, PhD from the Mississippi State University in the United States of America, in the field of Plant Pathology, gave a workshop on the possibility of using genes to resist plant diseases caused by nematodes. of Plant-Parasitic nematode by using Gene Manipulation
Where the workshop focused on how to get the genes and what is meant by the gene. Dr. Wissam Adnan Al-Ja’ifari explained that the gene is part of the DNA-deficient DNA. Al-Ja’ifari explained that it is possible to apply genes to resistance to plant diseases and to improve plant growth by selecting the traits that we would like to be present in the plant. Example Salinity endurance for some salt-tolerant plants. Al-Jaifari discussed the possibility of obtaining genes through the location of the database containing each organism, the genes that it contains, and the characteristics of these genes by knowing Glyma Number to the gene for the purpose of obtaining the sequencing of the nitrogen bases or so-called sequences into the gene concerned. Dr. Wissam Al-Jaifari also discussed how to obtain the sequence of the sequence of the nitrogen bases and compare them with the original copies in the database to prove the existence of the same genetically modified version. The workshop also dealt with how to design primers or what is known as Primers to the gene under study through the use of the database site and also to know the temperature of the reaction polymerization or what is known as PCR Reaction. Dr. Al-Jaafari discussed the possibility of applying the gene to the plant by conducting real time PCR through the use of primers or the so-called primers of the interaction. Dr. Al-Jaifari discussed how to design the prefixes and choose the number of nitrogen bases for such Interaction. Dr. Wissam al-Jaafari discussed some of the tangible results achieved by some of the researches published in international journals with high impact coefficient to positive results in reducing the rate of infection through the use of some genes in the resistance to diseases caused by nematodes.
