Evolution of Plant/Microbe Interactions

We work to understand how plants and microbes interact, as well as the role of mobile genetic elements in these symbioses. We use genomics, molecular biology, and computational methods to study populations of microbial pathogens and characterize their evolution, how pathogens spread in agricultural systems, and how new pathogen lineages emerge.
