SEMINAR: HETERODERA SCHACHTII AND ARABIDOPSIS THALIANA, A MODEL HOST-PARASITE INTERACTION BY U. WYSS and F. M. W. GRUNDLER Institut für Phytopathologie, Universität Kiel, Hermann-Rodewalt-Str. 9, D-2300 Kiel, Germany In order to study the molecular events in the interaction between plants and sedentary nema- todes, the potential of new molecular techniques should be applied to the best available model system. For reasons briefly described, the cruciferous host Arabidopsis thaliana is the most suitable model plant. Among several sedentary root nematodes infecting Arabidopsis, the sugar beet cyst nematode Heterodera schachtii is the best candidate. Some of the possible approaches to solve questions in the host-parasite interaction by using this unique model system are presented. Keywords: Arabidopsis thaliana, Heterodera schachtii, interaction. Plant nematology is basically an applied discipline and therefore in constant search of new control measures, especially against sedentary root nematodes, which are the economically most important root pathogens. Increasing constraints to the use of nematicides have enhanced research efforts to provide new crop varieties with resistance against these pathogens. However, these efforts require a better understanding of the fundamental principles involved in the complex plant-parasite interaction. With the rapid development of new techniques, these principles can now be studied
