Novel Pesticides for a Sustainable Agriculture

Project description

Targeted, nature-inspired pest control will protect our foods, our health and the environment

Oomycetes are a group of several hundred fungus-like microorganisms that infect a broad range of animals and plants. They constitute one of the biggest threats to global food security and ecosystem health, and current copper-based compounds used to control them impact the environment and human health. The EU-funded NoPest project is harnessing nature, Big Data and artificial intelligence to find a better solution. By identifying the small molecules that inhibit enzymes vital to oomycetes’ survival and finding others that mimic their activity, NoPest will deliver a safe and effective solution to a significant challenge in light of the pressures of climate change on our food supply.
