Kamel A Abd-Elsalam



Dr. Kamel A. Abd-Elsalam his Ph.D. degree in Molecular Plant Pathology with the late Professor Verreet JA.  at Kiel University (2004) and had postdoctoral training in the laboratories of Professors Verreet (Department of Plant Pathology, Kiel University) and Professor Pierre J. G. M. de Wit (Laboratory of Plant Pathology, Wagnigen University). His primary field is Plant Pathology with research emphasis on molecular diagnostics Plant Pathogenic fungi. He has recently entered the developing field of fungal-genomic research. Currently  there  is considerable  interest  for  fast detection of  infection of  small grain cereals  and  detection  of  Fusarium  pathogen  complexes  in  the  different  regions in Saudi Arabia by using LAMP-PCR.  Recently, he focused on plant pathogenic fungi, using a polyphasic approach based on multilocus phylogeny (gene-barcoding) and its correlation with polyphasic characters.
