Dr Ismail Ahmed Ismail has a Bachelor of Agriculture Science/Plant Protection, Master in Plant Protection/ Plant Pathology from the University of Baghdad and PhD in Plant Pathology from the University of Adelaide. He worked as assistant lecturer and lecturer at the University of Baghdad, then a postdoc at the University of Adelaide School of Agriculture Food and Wine from, Researcher at CSIRO Agriculture and Food, Lab Manager at SARDI/Clare then Senior Research Officer SARDI/ Horticulture Pathology/ Fungicide resistance project.
1- Advancing diagnostics for monitoring and management of fungicide resistance in grapevine
- Optimise high-throughput laboratory testing
- Optimise in-field testing, Develop sampling protocols
- Monitor fungicide resistance
- Develop assays to detect new resistance markers
2- Improving the understanding of fungicide resistance in Australian viticulture
- Determine the sensitivity of E. necator, B. cinerea and P. viticola to selected fungicides
- Increase knowledge about the relationships between phenotype, genotype and field efficacy.
- Evaluate spore trapping technologies
3- Validation of Net Form Net Blotch (NFNB) toxins/virulence factors in disease and as a selection tool- (GRDC funded project)
Other research questions:
- How does Pyrenophora teres fungus cause net form net blotch (NFNB) disease in barley?
- Contribution of Proteinaceous toxins to NFNB disease development in barley.
- Molecular Plant-Pathogen Interaction especially virulence factors and effectors.
