GENEPEASE Genomic tools for assessment of pesticide effects on the agricultural soil ecosystem

Publication: Research - peer-reviewWorking paper

The project focussed on validating RNA based methods as potential genomic tools in assessment of agricultural soil ecosystems. It was shown that the mRNA based technique was very sensitive and the effects was seen in the same situations as when the OECD nitrification assay showed an effect. 16S rRNA based pyrosequencing of bacterial communities in soil was shown to report different than just DNA based analysis and indicated unlike the DNA measurement that the community was developing. Finally microarray analysis was compared to traditional test for toxicity testing of Folsomia candida and showed a more sensitive response to the pesticide exposure.
