EUWOL project

European project Euwol FP5 (2000-2004) (Call identifier QLK3-CT2000-01079) : “European Wolbachia Project : Towards novel biotechnological approaches for control of arthropod pests and modification of beneficial arthropod species by endosymbiotic bacteria?”

The goal of the project is to obtain the genome sequence of three Wolbachia strains responsible for feminization of genetic males in isopods, cytoplasmic incompatibility in fruit flies and parthenogenesis in parasitoid wasps, along with identification of bacterial factors involved in the induction of these phenotypes (coordinator: K. Bourtzis, Heraklion, Grece).
