A method for obtaining quantities of clean meloidogyne eggs.
We have obtained gram quantities of clean, viable eggs of Meloidogyne incognita by a method which combined treatment with hypochlorite and differential centrifugation. Chili pepper plants (CapsicumExpand

Genotypic differentiation of meloidogyne populations by detection of restriction fragment length difference in total DNA.
Detection of EcoRI restriction fragment length differences in repetitive DNA sequences permitted the rapid diagnosis, by genotype, of randomly selected populations of Meloidogyne incognita, Races 1,Expand

Increased penetration of host roots by nematodes after recovery from quiescence induced by root cap exudate
Fourteen of 20 plant species surveyed produced root cap exudates that induced a state of reversible quiescence in Meloidogyne incognita and Caenorhabditis elegans. Exudate from six species failed toExpand
