Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms. Microbiology encompasses numerous sub-disciplines including virology, mycology, parasitology, and bacteriology.
Sofia Boqvist is an expert on in food safety and risk analysis. I want to contribute to a deeper understanding of how access to safe food for a growing population can be secured. The scientific field

During 2018 there is an opportunity to participate in the exciting and important work performed at the Unit for Risk Assessment of Plant Pests. We are currently offering several short-term
Here you will find completed and ongoing major projects that SLU Risk assessment of plant pests is involved in. Completed projects Trade and production of plants and plant products in Sweden - A
We perform independent analyses which will provide support to the Swedish Board of Agriculture in their effort to counter the damage of non-indigenous pests.
At SLU we work with the whole biogas chain. An unique feature for our research is that we answer questions about both energy generation and waste treatment. We have our own biogas plant as well as
In this project, we study the ecological mechanisms contributing to the assembly of a tree’s microbiome. The project will reveal host traits correlated with pathogen susceptibility relevant for
In this project we investigate if wheat leaves can be used to catch and analyse fungal spores. By increasing our knowledge on how diseases spread, we suggest better control strategies. Knowledge of
A changed climate and new cropping systems modifies the conditions for Swedish crop production. The spectrum and importance of different plant diseases might change, for example through increased
We are studying the effects of tillage and the preceding crop on soil microbial communities and plant disease in winter wheat. Field experiments are set up with six different preceding crops to
The introduction of microbial control agents into the European market for practical use in pest and disease control is a very slow and costly process. This is partly due to unnecessarily strict
