The results of the project enabled us to discover hop stunt viroid sequence (HSVd) in some of the symptomatic plants, which is important disease of hops. Based on this results, the preventive measures were taken by Phytosanitary administration of RS (Uradni list RS, no. 64/2011 12. avgust 2011).
F.01 Acquisition of new practical knowledge, information and skills
Invited lecture at international conference of the Genetic Society of Slovenia, where results of analysis of NGS data for new pathogen discovery were presented.
B.04 Guest lectureCOBISS.SI-ID: 7266169
Letcure at III International Humulus symposium organized by ISHS. We presented the data on use of NGS sequencing for detection of new pathogens.
B.03 Paper at an international scientific conferenceCOBISS.SI-ID: 7296633
After the identification of the new viroid presence in hops detailed guidelines and directions for hop growers were published. They are aimed to prevent spreading and for management of hop stunt disease. Flyer is available on internet or as a hardcopy.
F.17 Transfer of existing technologies, know-how, methods and procedures into practiceCOBISS.SI-ID: 7471481
In 2013 B.Javornik was appointed a »Knight of the Order of the Hop« of the International Hop Growers Convention for her distinguished achievements in hop research and for the transfer of research results to practice. The research group of B.Javornik has close collaboration with hop breeders, providing them with biotehnological tools for the improvement of effectiveness in hop breeding. The research group has also developed various diagnostic methods for the detection of hop pathogenes, including methods for the detection of hop viroid and for the detection of the lethal pathotype of Verticillium alboatrum that are currently used as routine methods.
