Hi Noah, thanks for your detailed answer! Thanks for clarifying this and for the info regarding those two papers. I'm definitely going to take a look at them :) What do you think? How long would it take to implement such a biological nematicidal toxin in agriculture so it is available for every farmer (e.g. in the U.S.) as an alternative to regular toxins? What are you going to do if you don't reach your fundraising goal? Are you nevertheless going to do the research as far as you can? Why do you think there are so few people that donate? I mean, it's not like this would be money thrown away, it's in fact a quite important topic, isn't it? (You mentioned ~1.5$ billion lost/year). Shouldn't the government too be interested in funding this research? Thanks for all the information and the support! Best, Martin

Sorry you had to wait for my answer so long.. I have been busy. :) I'm studying Biotechnology in Austria and I am currently in the 3rd semester. We have to do a presentation about one of the fundraising projects of this website to practice talking scientific english! I did a little bit of research about SCN and stumbled upon this paper (http://booksandjournals.brillonline.com/content/journals/10.1163/156854104323072883). Now, I didn't buy it so I could only read the abstract.. It looks like they were using similar methods as you do and - according to the fungal compounds they tested - they stated that "there was a low correlation in activity against SCN". Have you read this paper? Also, do you know if there has been other research on this topic? Best, Martin

Hi my name is Martin and I'm making a presentation about you and your project! Do you have some pictures about your working place and some more of your probes I could use? How did you come up with your hypothesis? Thanks for your answers, yours sincerely, Martin
