Đề án xin mở chuyên ngành đào tạo trình độ tiến sĩ về Tuyến trùng học


Với sự giúp đỡ của Lãnh đạo Viện, Phòng Tuyến trùng học đã hoàn thành Đề án xin mở chuyên ngành đào tạo trình độ tiến sĩ về Tuyến trùng học và đã nộp cho Bộ GD ĐT ngày 30/12/2014, theo đó Bộ GD ĐT sẽ thẩm định và trả lời trong Quí I/2015.

Theo qui định tại thông tư 38TT/2010 Bộ GD ĐT: toàn bộ đề án gồm 4 phần sau đây:



Founded in1995, 3 units: 

  1.  Plant Nematodes and Management
  2.  Aquatic Nematodes and Environtmental Ecology
  3.  Entomopathogenic Nematodes and Biocontrol

  Research Activities

  • Taxonomy and systematics of parasitic (plant, insect) and free-living (soil, fresh water and marine) nematodes in Vietnam.
  • Assessment of economic importance of plant parasitic nematodes in Vietnam and design/ advisory nematode management (IPM) in agricultural and forestry productions.
  • Developing the biotechnology of entomopathogenic nematodes for biological control of insects and other pests in Vietnam.
  • Developing nematode use as potential tools for pollution assessment and environmental biomonitoring of soil and aquatic ecosystems.
  •  Postgraduate training in Nematology.

Major Achievements 

Nematode Taxonomy

  •  250 species of plant parasitic nematodes recorded from agriculture and forest ecosystems.
  •  16 species of entomopathogenic nematodes and 25 other species of entomogenous nematodes.
  •  250 species of soil freeliving nematodes.
  • 350 species of fresh water and marine nematodes.

Nematode Management

  • Designed nematode management for black pepper, coffee and rice productions
  • Used selected indigenous nonpathogenic Fusarium oxysporum for bio-control of root-knot nematodes in tomatoes and rice productions      

  EPN and Biocontrol

  •  Evaluated and screened 7 EPN indigenous strains as potential agents for biocontrol of principal insect pests in Vietnam.
  •  Developed mass production of EPN by in vivo and in vitro cultures and formulated 6 EPN products named as BIOSTARs.
  •  Applied for control of 30 insect pests, among them some important pests of vegetable, tobacco, vineyard and sugarcane.

Use nematodes for Environmental Assessment 

  •   Assessed environmental quality of some agricultural soil ecosystems based on using nematode community structure and nematode maturity index (MI)
  • Assessed environmental pollution in some aquatic ecosystems based on application of PRIMER-5 for statistical analysis of nematode data and other benthic communities.
  • Compiled of national standards (as ISO-2002 VN) for water quality assessment based on use nematodes and other meio-benthos.
