This WWW site is designed as an aid for nematode identification and systematic research, as well as a general resource for the science of Nematology. The emphasis is on plant parasitic nematodes and insect parasitic nematodes . The molecular diagnostic protocols are those used in the laboratory, some designed by us, and others adapted from the literature. One major effort is the characterization of plant parasitic nematodes from the northern great plains of North America . We will update this site continually as we add new species, isolates and methods. Also you will find documents relating to nematode control and summaries of federally funded regional research projects . Your comments are welcome , and if you have nematode related material you'd like to submit, we'll do our best to include it. We will try to respond to questions in a timely manner.
